new light.


as you step on, vacuum, sweep-up, curse, recycle

those painful and elusive pine needles

fallen from your wreaths, trees, garlands

stop a second to take a very close look

at the beauty of a sliced pine needle magnified

and you may see them in a new light.

  1. That is purely stunning. Like the whole Universe in one little blade. I can barely see the needles much less the inside of one. So kind of whoever did the photo for me. Always wear some kind of shoes to protect the feet. Inevitably, you will step on something hurtful if you don’t. From ‘learned the hard way’. 🙂
