If Not for Love: Photos and a Poem

If Not for Love


Sometimes by icy mountain brook

there shines a gentle light

that etches all it falls upon

with loveliness.




Or on a beach at even tide

the gold of setting sun

ignites the foam of falling wave,

inviting one: come rest, come look!

To us such glorious light is given!

And to what purpose, if not to show

that all about is much more

beauty than there needs to be?

. . . if not for Love.
