When this picture passed through the family photo stream,
I immediately thought “Shekinah” (and asked permission to use it.)

I’ve been using this word a long time
whenever I see mist, or fog, or playful light among the trees.
You, O Shekinah,
cloaked in garments ethereal.
You, O Shekinah,
elegant and graceful.

You, O Shekinah,
Hebrew word
meaning Dwelling.
You, O Shekinah,
shaping your abiding
for a moment.
