Moment of silence

Only whispers of the breeze
we hear, a sea that is resting now,
and we feel the first light
from the Sun after the storm
touching our skins.

I am grateful to capture
this moment
of silence
for us.

I made this photo January 8,  Terschelling

  1. Inner and outer reflection, thank you.

  2. Everytime I read your work Ina you take me to the most beautiful places within my memories. Here this photo and prose takes me back to the shores of North Carolina on an isolated stretch of beach.

    • 🙂 Hi walter, that is interesting, I never was in the States, to think our beach is like the shore of North Carolina!

  3. A beautiful picture with well written words
    conveying much imagery of the moment

  4. Beautiful words and picture – Terschelling looks like ‘my kind’ of place.

    • Hi David, thank you very much.

      Terschelling is where I was born and always lived (with a brief period in Amsterdam) and I still see new beauty here every time. 🙂 Maybe you can visit one day 🙂

  5. Beautiful picture, beautiful poem

    Hi Ina,

    Wonderful poem and you took me right away back to the Islands in the North.

    groet, Francina

  7. Shhh! Even as I sit in a crowded Starbucks I am in the silence of your special moment ‘after the storm’.
