Light House

Recently visited the Montauk, NY Light House which inspired me photographically as well as poetically.

I'm rather please with my results♫

What metaphors might you see in this piece?

I used the charcoal sketch effect from Big Huge Labs, the FX selection.

Joining in with ABC Wednesday letter L
Alphabe-Thursday letter T for TALL
As well as Orange You Glad It's Friday (a bit of a stretch since the only thing orange is my font♫)
and Saturday Snapshot

                                    Bright…  Bright…  bright…  dark

Sturdy souls
Circular stairs
Watch tower power.
Warning/ beckoning
Treacherous shoals
Solitary life is led.
Equipment tending
Life saving, sending
Distress calls, attending
Battered men.
Foggy evenings
Mournful soundings
Crashing waves upon the shore.
How lightly can one tread?
How long for words unsaid?
Humming motor, constant thread
The Light House stands immobile.
Historical monument, beacon of the moment
A Tall, House of Light…
Spiking the dark with Good News that Christ pierces the night.

  19. This is one of my favorite lighthouses.

    Number one in the US remains Heceta Head in Oregon.

    But I love the history and magic behind all these terrific structures.
