Heavens Embroidered Cloths

IMG_4965

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths

En-wrought with golden and silver light

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths

Of night and light and the half-light

I would spread the cloths under your feet

 

But I, being poor, have only my dreams

I have spread my dreams under your feet

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

William Butler Yeats

I had an amazing experience paddling in the sea, on an almost deserted beach, with the sun setting over the Lleyn Peninsula. As it set, the almost-full moon rose behind me. I could have stayed there all night. Such awe-inspiring beauty stirring my heart.

“Look  to this day, for it is Life, the very life of Life;
In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence…
the Bliss of Growth, the Glory of Action, the Splendour of Beauty.

For Yesterday is but a Dream,
and Tomorrow only a Vision;
But Today well lived makes Yesterday a Dream of Happiness
and Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the Salutation to the Dawn.”
