New (to me) Blog

In looking about the internet for inspiration, I ran across a new blog. Here’s a link to the article that hooked me, but I hope you’ll take some time to explore more of Margaret Emerson’s excellent writing:

Dave’s Been at it Again

Check out Dave Bonta’s latest poems. Notice at the bottom of this one – Red Trillium, he has added navigation – so you can click back to Spring Beauties and forward to Painted Trillium.

I’m just so excited about this collaboration that I’m going back to my photos to see if I have more! (Poor Dave… I’ll work his poetry-writing brain cells to exhaustion!)

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!…
