    This photo is exquisite! It looks like you had a moment of clarity on a lovely spring day. Finding treasure in nature does that to a person who sees what others often miss! Just beautiful! Thank you for posting it for all of us to enjoy!

      Many thanks. Now we have a very pleasant beginning of spring. I hope the tornadoes from the south don’t get us. I firmly believe that beauty surrounds us, but we do not allow ourselves to stop for a moment to appreciate it. And this is very bad.

        Yes it is! The most precious things are often overlooked. It does take a little time to stop for a closer look. I’m intrigued by the tiny shoot coming up kind of center right of the central bud. Isn’t it amazing that the new growth of this season happens in successive waves. Spring, I think, is very instructive! You captured so much in one picture!

    Born to shimmer
    shining would be too dull
    Lifting up past my roots
    Tasting the air
    The sunshine
    The dew

    I’m alive and opening my petals wide
    Life take me
    I am yours
    But for this short time

      Thank you very much for this poem. I can’t believe this photo inspired you to write this.

        Thank you for inspiring me. Your blog has been inspiring me a lot lately. Your photos speak to my friend. πŸ™‚ I love close ups. It could be because I am near sighted haha. Seeing the bone structure of things, it’s skin, it’s life form is such a gift. πŸ™‚ I get really inspired by photographs. When I first started my blog years and years ago, I used to write my poems that way, frequently. I do a lot of free verse to keep my mind sharp and to challenge myself. A few of my newest posts are free verse. I think I’m improving with it. I always want to get better and grow as a writer πŸ˜€πŸ™ƒπŸ€—πŸ₯Ήβ˜ΊοΈπŸ˜ƒπŸ™‚ Thank you for talking so much with me, too. I am enjoying with talking to many writers on here. I don’t have too many people in my physical world that love to talk art and poetry and photography like everyone on here does. It’s so much fun 😊 beautiful photo

        I am not a writer. I love taking pictures, but even naming them is sometimes a big problem for me. But I like to read your comments and I really like our poems. Thanks.
