Farewell, photo version

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding

The fire in leaf and grass
so green it seems
each summer the last summer.

The wind blowing, the leaves
shivering in the sun,
each day the last day.

A red salamander
so cold and so
easy to catch, dreamily

moves his delicate feet
and long tail. I hold
my hand open for him to go.

Each minute the last minute.

Lovely arrangements of photo and poetry. Wouldn't it be something to come across a lovely present like this on the sidewalk?

I have so many quotes to share about this theme! I will write only two of them:

"A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it."
(Georges Moore - 1852/1933 - Irish Artist)

"...that's what learning is. You suddenly understand something you have understood all your life, but in a new way."
(Doris Lessing - British Novelist)

Oh, and I simply loved Jasmine's comment in the previous post. I checked out the music and was moved by it. Thank you, Jasmine!
