on the Delaware River in Pennsylvania

I am the blue horse that runs on the plain

I am a feather on the bright sky

I am the fish that rolls, shining, in the water

I am the evening light,

the lustre of meadows
You see, I am alive, I am alive

~from The Delight Song of Tsoai-talee by N. Scott Momaday


  1. Nice photos. I like the one titled evening light with the dusky river in the background.

  2. Hello Margaret

    you have given me another lead to follow, thank you

    I love the last flower, because it is a simple flower but so a tutu...whirling...

    Happy days

  3. hello margaret, i am visiting from dan's blog over at "mindful heart". i see that we both admire delwyn's beautiful writing at " a hazy moon" as well. i am so glad i came here because the words and pictures are beautiful.
    i'm not surprised to see that dan liked the very same picture i was stunned by - 'i am the evening light'. wow!
    you have a lovely blog that i'm going to enjoy following! have a lovely evening. steven

  4. Lovely photos, lovely words. I Like all of them; a wonderful post to come across on a hectic day. Thank you.

  5. I love how the blue horse that was running on the plain found its way downtown for a taste of city life.

  6. Hi Margaret! Beautiful photos, well chosen for each phrase and sentence!!! Love it. That blue horse reminds me of a summer in Montreal where we were invaded by painted cows all over the city, it was really neat. I'm so glad that I've inspired you to look twice at the trees, lol! People must think we're crazy sometimes, but you're right it is so much fun and really does lighten the mood!

  7. Very, very pretty and soothing Margaret....julie

  8. Such gorgeous photos and words once again, dear Margaret! I absolutely love the Delaware River area of Pennsylvania. It seems we enjoy some of the same beautiful little spots on our precious planet.

    Hugs and love,

  9. Thank you for the words and pictures you share with us! Always something to give an extra thought.

  10. Hello Margaret - that is just lovely - thank you

  11. Thanks, Dan! I was wondering if that was a resurrection lily?

    Thanks, Delwyn! Here we go again! What is the other lead?! (Remember how we were describing pix of each other's homes that we couldn't see ourselves? Too funny!) Oh, I love the whirling tutu image. You use all the senses in your writing--very rich. LOVE xxox

    Thanks, Steven! Yes, I've seen you at Delwyn's and Dan's, too. I also am looking forward to following your blogs!

    Thanks, Friko! That's how I felt about those witty book shops! LOVE xxox

    Hi Lynne! You are so right! That's what happens when a rhythm and "blues" kind of horse kicks up his heels! LOVE xxox

    Hi Rain! Yes! I remember the painted cows' kick! Each one different? I think they traveled from town to town! I love your green blog; I think it's a life-giving, healing color, and I really feel it when I visit you. LOVE xxox

    Thanks, Julie! I'm glad this feels soothing because we all need to come across that sensation during the day. LOVE xxox

    Thanks, Angela! In fact, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin have similar rolling hills and farmland. Beautiful! LOVE xxox

    Thanks, Gry! That close-up/macro of the eagle's head was so amazing! Down to being able to seeing its tongue! LOVE xxox

    Thanks, Rosie! I need to come over and visit you! Hope all is well! LOVE xxox

  12. From Philadelphia ??? Your blue horse is wonderful, could ride off into the stars on a beast like that...

  13. Beautiful photos and text. I have read N. Scott Momaday, but can't recall what book, at the moment. I really liked it, though! Blessings,

  14. Hi Owen! He's standing right outside the Frenchtown Inn in Frenchtown, PA! Yes, he does fit in with my stars! Bonnes vacances, Owen! a tout a l'heure!

    Hi Gretchen! Yes, you would have read him; he's a very spiritual, of-the-earth, native American. I love my purple cowgirl shirt! I really need that color boots to go with it now. I have a great matching lariat! LOVE xxox
