My little brother (well, he’s in his 20’s) and I stopped by the side of the road to take these photos after our brunch date today. It wasn’t exactly the best time of day for photography—what with harsh noontime sun. However, the weather was exhilarating: warm and sunshiny, yet cold in the wind. Looking back over the photos we took, the mood and setting remind me of Emily Dickinson’s poem “A light exists in Spring.” I would elaborate, but I think I’ll just let the poet speak today:

“A light exists in Spring
Not present on the year
At any other period.
When March is scarcely here


A color stands abroad
On solitary hills
That science cannot overtake,
But Human Nature feels.


It waits upon the Lawn;
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope we know;
It almost speaks to me.


Then, as Horizons step,
Or Noons report away,
Without the Formula of sound,
It passes and we stay —


A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.”
