mother maple

a brightness
spotted 
i follow 
following a daystar 
a tiny ripple 
a tiny rift 
sugar maple 
sweetness

maple sap is exquisite, mildly sweet and delicious. and the trees weep from any wounds. like this one.

jo said...

isn't that the ultimate - to just be able to go and lick the goodness straight from the tree

Velma said...

it's wonderful, jo, and each spring brings this simple, profound pleasure.

V- That is such a cool sequence of photos and what a great result - nectar. V I just laughed out loud when I got to the last two frames. Such a good time after all the cold and snow you have had. Go well and enjoy the sweetness of nature and life. B
