one morning

“Fjord in Norway” by Lev Lagorio

It is that dream we carry
that something miraculous will happen
that it must happen –
that time will open
that the heart will open
that doors will open
and that the rock face will open
that springs will gush forth –
that the dream will open
and that one morning we’ll glide in
to a harbour we didn’t know was there.
~ Olav H. Hauge

  1. I’m not sure which is more beautiful. The painting or the poem. It’s a good thing I don’t have to make a choice. Wonderful pairing, Barbara. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Robin! As we plan our trip to Norway it seems something miraculous is happening, my life-long dream is at long last coming true. 🙂

    1. Sybil, I had no idea, but I did know that the Vikings explored Newfoundland over a thousand years ago. I googled fjords in Newfoundland and found some stunning photos of them. The world is so huge and there are countless wonders to be found just about everywhere.

  2. I didn’t know that you were planning a trip to Norway, Barbara. How exciting! That would be like me planning a trip to England (which I may do one day!)….the homes of each of our ancestors.

    “We’ll glide into a harbour we didn’t know was there”….I love that line.

    1. I don’t mention our travel plans too often, Joanne, I’m afraid I will jinx them! I’ve been dreaming about this trip to Norway for as long as I can remember. I do hope you will also get a chance to glide into an English harbor some day and walk on the soil where so many of your ancestors have lived. Sometimes dreams do come true!

Your thoughts are much appreciated...
