Frequently Revisited

This shot keeps pulling me back in.  Some time ago, a colleague (the fierce Texan) once said something about the scene reminding her of a T.S. Eliot poem.  I know the poem well, and will reproduce it (in part) here for comparison:

LET us go then, you and I,

When the evening is spread out against the sky

Like a patient etherized upon a table;

The complete poem is here.

It seems that I captured that spread-out sky and somehow I caught the mood of Eliot’s poem.  Hudson views are frequently amazing if not dramatically unique; however, I’ve not seen many evening skies like that.

Regarding the “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” it is difficult to believe that he wrote the poem in his mid-20s and published it at 27 years of age.
