The Light Between

Crepuscular, lucent, inchoate, liminal, immanent, coruscating, nacreous, incandescent, penumbral.

(Okay, two of those aren't to do with light, I just like them).

Is the uncertainty principle the equivalent of negative capability in poetry?

For my sister Aleph.

I remember my physic text books which sometimes had imaginative and beautiful photos which illustrated the nature of light, but never had this kind of artwork.
Well, a couple of words which describe how I feel about this picure; visionary, entrancing, tende and elegant.

light enlightens incandescent blisses... Thank you Susan (i´m out of words, & think they´re not necessary now, shhhh!)

Well, I think the uncertainty principle itself is quite poetic notwithstanding all those physics symbols. Like poetry, it too is an abstraction and a metaphor for something beyond.

Hey,
quit making up words.
You know thats just not fair.
We don't get to appear knowledgeable
as a result of making up our own vocabulary,
do we?

Why,

maybe we do.

Damn.

I like words.
quite a bit.
I wish I was better at them.
This is a beautiful image,
but I really like yesterdays with the dog intermixed with the gate and things going on in back of them, in the, well, background.

No.
We're just discussing entropy here with little result. Unlike the photograph. Magic!

It kind of took me a little while to figure out what I was looking at, but once I did I really liked it! Sunshine is a great addition to a picture.

A beautiful picture. Aleph has a beautiful blog. I often visit but feel my words are too clumsy to do justice to her art, words, sentiments...

TFE - It is an odd thing that was once part of something else which some friends gave me when they moved away.

And luminous. And halo, which I see here.

Those terms gave me goosebumps, some of which I had not heard of before. The art of articulation is such an addiction of mine. Thank you for delightfully expanding my vocabulary.

R- nice alliteration in the second line. Where's my novel in manuscript?
