COLORS OF A LIFETIME by Joseph B. St. John

Image by Joe from Pixabay Silence breaks the thunder. Warm, billowing masses of air stream through the night. Clouds like children gallop the skyline. A pale, refreshing breeze envelops my skin. Darkness covers all except for twilight’s flickering light.   Mist, so rare a beauty– Moisture’s shiverless form pleases in its touch. The dampness lingers …

William Blake and the Wonder of Nature and the Supernatural by Joseph B St John

“Heartland”

A little art now for the art site:  Photo by Chad Peltola on Unsplash Raging through the Heartland in a cream-colored Cadillac, I saw the light’s ray illuminate the dust from my dashboard.

Upon Butterfly Wings

Photo Credit: Yuichi Kageyama on Unsplash by Joseph B. St. John  In the space of one morning, I saw the tiny doves fly into the sunrise.
