No one knew the name of this day;
Born quietly from deepest night,
It hid its face in light,
Demanded nothing for itself,
Opened out to offer each of us
A field of brightness that traveled ahead,
Providing in time, ground to hold our footsteps
And the light of thought to show the way.
( from The Inner History of a Day by John O’Donohue)

First of all, when I saw your title my first reaction was NO WAY! Stunned? Hugely! Secondly your images, Tiny, all have such depth and Love to them, as I appreciated each deeply along with the words to the poem you posted.
