Trailing Clouds of Glory

What is more wondrous than gazing upon a newborn baby?
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home:
Heaven lies about us in our infancy!
~William Wordsworth

I love the mom's expression in this picture. You're absolutely right...nothing compares to the wonder of new life.

Amy @ Living Locurto said...

I was wondering when I would see this type of "wonder" shot. Good idea:-) So sweet.

Babies are such a wonder--beautiful picture!

Julie Rivera Photography said...

The parents' expression, separate in their own amazement at this little life, yet connected in some silent way, is wonderful. Truly, a gem of a moment captured!

What a touching moment-dad and mom and new little son.

The miracle of the "circle of life"

That is my most favorite Wordsworth quote. Especially now and we are about to have some of the trailing clouds at our house. What a blessing.

Beautiful photo and such a perfect photo for this week's theme. Who can't help but "wonder" when looking upon a new baby..."will I be a good parent?" "what will he/she grow up to be?" "I wonder what they are thinking"

Wonderful job!
