Moon Drops

There Are To Things I really love in Life. 2 of them are the moon and the drops.
I love the moon because of its simplicity, its light and because It is my light from the darkest hours!
I love the drops, because they are like tears, but the difference is that in each drop, there is something inside that is different!
I also love macros because of that… Make us see things that we cannot see without looking patiently and close.

Moon, you have a shade of blue tonight -
Is it something that you saw or heard?
Only yesterday, your tone was proud and bright:
Yellow silver, full, and so assured.

by Mark Raymond Slaughter

Did you know that your life is like a rain drop?
that everyone's life is?
we all start so high up
Ignorant of the misery of the earth,
as we get older, we fall, bit by bit, learning about the cruel world,
but we are still young enough not to have experienced it.
even older, we fall even more, but we haven't touch the ground yet,
because we can still do something about the evil,
yet, we get even older,
and we fall some more, getting weaker, as time goes on.
older still,
and still falling from hate,
then, when we finally hit the ground, like a rain drop,
and it's all over

      It's a wonderful set Ricky both by the photos and by the words. And I find in the photo n°3 a charm and a subtle poetry
