Anticipate the Arrival


to be receptive
for a dawning of inspiration
is to open with tender anticipation
for the dearest of friends to arrive
knowing full well that they will

be open
for the friend could look
different than ever imagined
tis the nature of
divine inspiration

top flower: wild chives
bottom: mountain death camas

  29. What a strange and spooky name for such a beautiful flower (Death Camas.) Are they poisonous?

    The chives blossom is beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing your photos.

  35. So True. We are friends with All as long as we allow our neighbors to be, giving them the gift, to offer us the present that they truly are.

  36. Beautiful flowers and words of inspiration to go with them.

  37. Great shots..
    Chive flowers can be added to your salad.
    Mmountain death camas I am not recommending!!
    All parts of this plant contain the poisonous alkaloid zygadenine, which some claim to be more potent than strychnine. Two bulbs, raw or cooked, can be fatal. Poisoning result from confusing these bulbs with those of edible species.

    Anyway this is a wonderful post, love the pictures and the poem.

  42. You are right Tammie. I was just commenting to someone that you cannot judge things by what they look like on the outside as it is the inside which matters most.

  47. What a beautiful post! Congrats on the Post of the Day Award!

  48. "The friend could look different than ever imagined" fits here so well. Who would have thought that the chives we sprinkle on our food could be so beautiful in the garden. Or a flower with "death" in its name could be so gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Mountain death camas, now there's a name to conjure with.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Such wonderful, delicate blossoms! Wonderful captures.

  53. Gosh, but I’ve become such a world-weary creature! Just a few small years ago, I’d have been all over the mystery of this by the second line. This day, I didn’t get that excited, open-to-possibilities feeling until “the friend could be different than ever imagined.” I love that!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Beautiful shots as always. The words have special meaning for me. I've been restless lately, unable to settle to creative things I want to do. Your words remind me to be receptive, that inspiration wants to come and will if I relax and let it in. Thanks as always, Tammie!
