a few blossoms

 i brought home 
three blossoms 
not many left
 almost sunset
 all the leaves are gone
 next year's leaves
are bundled up
and sunblushed
 in the distance
 no ice this afternoon
 clouds in the puddle
 beneath
 a touch of palest chartreuse 
 just behind this
 elder maple 
who's endured much abuse from the road crew

Beautiful... I took my students to a state park today and made a TON of photos of the pond and then my commute home. Often when I don't have time for the studio, the camera is a good way to express and SEE.

Velma Bolyard said...

valerie, lucky students, and this camera thing is terrific!

Time. Cycles of life, sometimes high and visible, sometimes low and hidden. Everything in the world is in a state of flux.
It's spring for me, but how I love that sense of the world closing down, like it's taking a good long sleep and doesn't want to see what's out there any more.
The world restores itself.

ms, yes. it lingers sometimes, pulling me along with it, but always descending into needed night

faisal, you are absolutely right. now that i have a strong australia connection, i feel the strength of opposites, seasons, hemispheres, and the connection we all have to this amazing planet.
