Friday Flash 55 — inainte de Mara

inainte de Mara (Before Mara) by Sorin Onisor


This picture tells of many things: of walking in beauty and being of light, of sweet air speckled with gold, of simple living and depth of thought, of harvest halos preceding her hellos to the child. The rainbow that dropped from the sky now clings to their cottage. The time of waiting is nearly over.


Written for Friday Flash 55 - My post in exactly 55 words - for the G-Man.

why does that woman have furry legs - is she the wife of Mr Tumnus?

Lydia said...

Pixies~ Your eyes are not working today. She is wearing a skirt!!!
I do not know who Mr. Tumnus is.

Brian Miller said...

first, i can see why he thought they were hairy...i had to do a double take before even reading the comment...smiles...


wonderful write though...i feel so much hope and promise in it...and beautiful imagery as well lydia...

izzy said...

Mr Tumnus was half fawn half man, from "The Lion, the Witch and the wardrobe" I believe. As to his eye sight I cannot say- but I like your tale here Lydia! Thank you for your optimism!

ReBelle said...

Charming and so peaceful.

hedgewitch said...

A beautiful sense of waiting for harvest, of renewal and struggle undertaken in hope.

Yvonne Osborne said...

What a beautiful image and your description of it. I love the rainbow that clings to the cottaqe and the waiting harvest, the culmination of a summer's work. I had to laugh at the comment on her furry legs. Too funny!

Eric (Bubba) Alder said...

It's like an entire sub-text revealed within the photo. Nice work.

Mama Zen said...

This is lovely!

Roxana said...

wonderful! the image is so warm and peaceful, but your words made it glow from within with a different light, that of your own soul...

and sorin onisor! now you know two photographers from romania! :-)

dmarks said...

Not sure the pollen would be good for those with allergies, though. Good photo/

Doctor FTSE said...

"The rainbow that dropped from the sky" is a lovely idea. ( Is she waiting for some event that's gone unnoticed?)

G-Man said...

I was gonna say. "Waiting for What"? But then it finally hit me.. Knocked Up!
Loved your Glowing 55 Lydia
Thanks for this rustic little Gem
You Rock Baby!
Have a Kick Ass Week-End

Lydia said...

Brian~ Thank you so much for your comment, including taking Pixies off the hook!

izzy~ My pleasure....and thanks for clarifying who that dude was!

ReBelle~ Peaceful....thanks, that is how the image made me feel too.

hedgewitch~ Ah, such beautiful words, hedge. Thanks.

Yvonne~ Many thanks. I laughed too but just don't see what they are seeing!

Eric~ It is? Why thank you!

Mama Zen~ I appreciate that.

Roxana~ I was so hoping you would see this post, and wondered if you possibly know the photographer. He is a facebook friend, via another fb friend, and his work shows Romania with such love.
Many thanks for your beautiful comment.

dmarks~ Pollen is indeed tricky. I like the photographer's work so much, too.

Doctor FTSE~ Thank you, kind sir. Please note that the lovely lady is "with child" (or if you prefer another phrase, check out G-Man's below :)

G-Man~ Hah! You just cracked me up with this comment. Thanks, master.

Cad said...

From rainbow to baby bump - delightful!

Lucy Westenra said...

A lovely, serene little piece. I wonder what's making the rainbow.

Rob-bear said...

Friday
in a flash.
Of lightning?
She waits,
and wanders,
and wonders.

And since
she is wonderfully dressed
no "flash" from her
this Friday.

bfk said...

I think it's time she washed that dress.

Lydia said...

Cad~ Hello, and thanks!

Lucy~ Now you have me wondering that too!

Rob-bear~ I think she is dressed wonderfully, too. Thanks for your poem of understanding.

bfk~ I do think it is a pattern, silly. You guys sure weren't seeing what I saw in this.

Shakira Choong said...

I love the way you describe the season and what you see in the picture, she is expecting right? New beginnings...GREAT JOB, Lydia.
Mine is here
Have you a TRULY BLESSED SUNDAY and a WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING!!!
hugs
shakira

Just love the harmony and glow in that picture. And yes, it is beeing in soft light surrounded by peace and calm moment...:)

Margaret said...

I loved the soothing words and then the reference to "Tumnus" (I've been involoved with the stage play Lion, Witch.. etc, for six years) ha ha and then Mr. G's comment. But back to your beautiful words ... She does look happy, all golden and beautifully glowing.
