Beltane 2014



we are
halfway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice
 

flowers raise their lovely faces


to the sun


cloaked in leaves


glacier lilies breathe


until the perfect moment to bloom
 

flower season has JUST begun


it amazes me
to find tiny succulents
that have lived beneath winter's snow


I am still in love
with the new buds on the tops of fir trees

  1. Such wonderful spring magic! The tiny Beltane like a shower of stars and those so delicate glacier lilies belying their looks and showing their inner strength.

  3. Oh Tammie Lee, I'm with you in the WONDER department. We are finally getting some spring and the daffodils are shooting their green blades up, the yellow forsythia is in bloom, and I don't think I've ever been this excited about spring. We had a long hard winter, and we are ready. Lovely flowers, and thank you so much for coming by! Anita
