Petals Amongst Petals


vision wanders between the folds
and layers
of all the luscious petals

there is a consequence when one beholds this beauty
tender awareness rises
waves of an inner reflection

no longer can one deny
that life holds precious
the layers of sensuous grace

    My peonies are all but finished with their how. Thank you for sharing yours with us. :_

  14. Images, words and pink petals. You're a poet too Tammie. Peonies are... Well you said it with your images and words.

    The hostas in my yard are ready to bloom. I haven't taken any macro shots this year (yet). Soon...when the hostas are ready.

    You make it look so easy, using images and words like that. But it is when it all looks easy, one know it is not!

  21. Peonies are the best! I love their beautiful perfume. Wish they'd last longer, but the rain always knocks them down. My trick is to pick them in bud and put in a vase of water. They open in the room and release a wonderful fragrance.

  27. It is so lovely to see flowers. They certainly bring out a gentleness in us. The pink is just a light tone. No wonder little girls like pink.

  30. Absolutely breath-taking. My parents' Canadian neighbour has worked very hard to create a garden of peonies this year. Her own flowers are a like a timeless flock of birds with their own personalities. They sway in the wind as if they are a heavenly choir singing in perfect harmony.
