I am beginning a new series titled "Before and After". I will display a variety of wildflowers, trees, and plants in various stages of their lives, through the seasons. Look for more Before and After throughout the year.
A large portion of my work deals with the intricacies of nature; particularly the unique, often overlooked details of wildflowers and common plants of the forests and fields, wetlands and meadows. You have read many short lessons in Botany here at WWFN. You have witnessed my observations turned into poems.
The "Poetry of Plants" is a collection of some of my poems, selected for this theme.
Click on the link below each photo to see the nominations, and to read them in their entirety. Then return to this list for more. Or, you could read one a day, for five days. For recent viewers, these may be new to you. For loyal followers, it's a look back.
I hope you enjoy the selections I've chosen for this short anthology called:
Sometimes hidden from me in daily custom and trust, so that I live by you unaware as by the beating of my heart, suddenly you flare in my sight, a wild rose blooming at the edge of thicket, grace and light where yesterday was only shade,
and once more I am blessed, choosing again what I chose before.
