Be Like a Flower

 
tranquility abounds
penetrating presence

the mind rests
natural view rises
there is only to be
like a flower or a tree
smiling at the sun

  1. How delicate, I do love harebells, they are like little jewels in long grass. Real fairy bonnets.

    Thanks for the lovely comments on the kids words; we said goodbye to some of them today, they were so pleased that someone from across the world had read their writing. Sadly we said goodbye to some today and waved them on towards adulthood.

  2. Refreshing sight and restorative words for my poor parched soul. Thank you, Tammie!

  3. Oh, I WOULD LIKE to be this tender flower... To give my pollen to the bees or to make friends with the butterflies around... And to be discovered by a special person like you!

  5. Don't you think Harebell is a lovely name - they have the same name here in the UK too. Such a delicate flower seems to be made of tissue paper.

  9. I thought they were called Bluebells, but here I see they are Harebells. Whatever the name, they are beautiful, and you captured them so well.

  19. 'Tis a little bell! So sweet, I am imagining it chiming! :-)

  20. Lovely Pictures.
    There's a poem by Emily Pauline Johnson that fits nicely

    Elfin bell in azure dress,
    Chiming all day long,
    Ringing through the wilderness
    Dulcet notes of song.
    Daintiest of forest flowers
    Weaving like a spell--
    Music through the Autumn hours,
    Little Elfin bell.

  21. T- love the blurred green background to the delicate purple and gentle drops of dew (rain). Love how the top drops are filled with sunlight - golden - healthy - energetic. B
