So Excited

Sometimes, all you have to do is ask.

I had this vision of a book – hand made by my friend Deb Eck –

Graduation Book 02

containing my photos of wildflowers

Spring Beauty

punctuated with poems by poet Dave Bonta.

Prim pink pinstripes
beckon from the wet soil
beside the creek. But like
most beauties, they’re choosy
about their suitors,
unmoved except by just
the right bee visiting
in just the right order:
one day they hokey-
poke their stamens out;
the next, it’s the anther’s turn.
Petals close even for a cloud.
And when flowering’s done,
they do their best
to pass for grass.
Who wouldn’t be wary
with such a large
& edible heart?

And so it begins!…

  1. Oh that is wonderful. Your wildflower pictures inspire me, and Dave’s ‘Morning Porch’ is the first thing I read when I open my email in the morning. Combining that with Deb’s ‘natural’ bookmaking skills is nothing short of brilliant.

    ’tis wonderful!
