Photo Challenge: A Last Peek for a Sinking Star

The summer sun takes a last peek through the trees before its nightly slumber.

To follow knowledge like a sinking star,
Beyond the utmost bound of human thought.
–Alfred Lord Tennyson

Photo Challenge: Odysseys, to Seek a Newer World

The first of all wanderers, the “man of many ways,” who gave his name to odysseys, came to life in Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poetry:

Come my friends,
‘T is not too late to seek a newer world.
For my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars.
Ulysses

Photo Challenge, Shine: To Sail Beyond the Sunset

Come, my friends,
‘T is not too late to seek a newer world.

Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars.

Alfred Lord Tennyson, Ulysses

Photo Challenge: Not Too Late to Seek a Newer World

The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks:
The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs:
Come, my friends,
‘T is not too late to seek a newer world.
