De-light in Nature

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand…” – Albert Einstein

Art-filled
magic grows
out of weeping
willow trees and wild
hearts.

In
all this
darkness, the familiar
lush of a hyacinth
shines.

In de-light,
the dandelion
sees her dark.

    1. And yes, I was quite taken by the dandelion leaning towards her shadow, as in in disbelief something can be so pretty.

  5. I couldn't agree more with Einstein's quote. And you, my dear, have captured the delight so stunningly in both words and images. Exquisite!

  8. Wonderful photos. And I love that the elfchen and haiku are not merely descriptive but take us into places that are unexpected – yet so apparent once pointed out.

    1. Me too! Life has to be good, if one can look at one's own darkness and still be so bright.

  25. There is magic in the willow tree. The photos are beautiful, especially the hyacinth. Dandelions are good in their own way for their early blooms feed the bees.

  27. I think I could just fall into the darkness of that hyacinth. Like a dark star and black hole. It draws me in. The contrast in colours and the light/shadow is just divine.
