Crocus - A Flower That's Always An Inspiration




Creation's little wonders
Rocking my soul alive
Overriding gloom's residue

Cry no more
Under the snow
Sun arises

You make good use of your digital camera... Nice haiku

My dad used to put on these little slide shows and his sisters would always gripe, "Where's the people?" They never really appreciated his appreciation for nature. Seeing your photos of flowers and fungi... remind me of him. My brother still takes more pictures of nature than people. The yellow flowers we call "cowslip" and the purple, Grape hyacinth.

So pretty! I love crocuses. I've been trying to get outside to take a few shots of the spring flowers but the monsoon season has arrived in Germany and we are having non-stop showers. Good for the vegetation but not so good for the camera. :-)

An absolutely beautiful poem to match a beautiful picture.

Uh...that remi8nds me of a song:

" Just remember in the winter,
far beneath, the bitter snow,
lies the seed, that with the sun´s love;
in the spring...becomes the rose!"

Thanks, sage. I have fun doing it - both the photography and my occasional stabs at poety.

Thanks, nines. Yes, I tend to do more photos of nature than people though I do definitely do some of both. You generally don't have to worry about displeasing nature by taking pictures of nature. :) As for the names of the flowers, it's always interesting to hear what different people call them.

Hi, christina. Thanks for coming by. And,yes, rain does have a way of stopping one from taking outdoor pictures. Actually, here, we could use some rain. Maybe you could send just a little of yours here. ;)

Thanks, rubysoho. I had fun doing the post.

How true, minka.

Thanks for coming by, aluadacbs. Always good to hear from you.

I'm not sure why, Tim, but your words made me start crying. For you? For me? Not sure why....

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, ginnie. Sometimes, words have a way of touching the depths of our souls.

Thanks, abandoned in Pasadena. It's always good to know that other people appreciate one's work.
