Spring Flowers


 in the wild places of NW Montana

spring is still a mix of dead plant debris from last autumn
and

tiny signs of new growth


wandering along a river path

i found a bit of color

you know it had me on my knees
 
capturing it's portrait 
it's scent like an elixer
had me delighted

~




what flower is this?
it looks very much like a lilac
and yet the petals seemed more fragile thin
i wonder if there is a wild variety?

Kissed by a Butterfly


walking in the woods today
caressed by a warm breeze
serenaded by Sandhill cranes
quacking ducks
 and the little birds

a tiny butterfly 
landed on my shoulder
then kissed my forehead
a feeling of being blessed permeated my spirit


the mastery of a butterflies kiss
 thaws the remnants of winter
presenting spring

Like a Chandelier


 stepping onto a lakeshore beach
steeped in morning shade
dappled in morning light
song of pouring creek
spring bush laden with newborn buds
shinning
lit up
like a crystal chandelier
i felt as though i stepped into mystical magical realm
yes
that would be planet earth
