You Cannot See Them

Standard

You cannot see them

ladies walking home at night

wrapped in towels

dampening sarongs

orbs (c) Cheyenne MacMasters 2013

You hear their laughter

and sleepy murmurs

spirits follow

listening closely

orbs (c) Cheyenne MacMasters 2013

You cannot see them

ladies with attentive spirits

walking gliding

through the night

orbs (c) Cheyenne MacMasters 2013
Freshly bathed

thoughts of comforts

home draws them onward

ladies walking above

orbs (c) Cheyenne MacMasters 2013

You did not see them

Nor saw the spirits

that shadowed

wet ladies

walking home tonight.

About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.

  1. I agree with the preceeding blogger: ‘Excellent imagery’. I’ve found a strange word: ‘sarong’ … My vocabulary is bigger! Thank you, Cheyenne, for a poem and lesson. 🙂

    • Thank you, Wanda, for your lovely comment. Now, the next lesson is how to wear a sarong. That one I haven’t mastered, so I use mine as a shawl to block the sun and protect against air conditioning.
