light on the rowan berries

because the dark comes so quickly now
late afternoon is filled with the
compressed golden light of evening
and slides away so quickly
it pays to be quick with the camera

I'm still not used to seeing the name Rowan for those. I'm used to either Mountain Ash or the Polish name for it. I think it's spelled jazembina, with a dot over the z, but I'm not sure. The j has a y sound, but I don't know how I'd describe how the z is supposed to be pronounced. When I was a kid, my mother used to sing a Polish love song that, in English, would be Red Mountain Ash. It was years before I heard the recorded version. I couldn't believe how much better it sounded - when my mother sang it! *L*

I still think of that song and my mother singing it, every time I see a Red Mountain Ash.

Photo Quotes
When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
