two of me

under droplets of sweet summer rain
white
under rays of intense warm sunshine
*
i
am
like a
flower
bloom & wilt
grow & wither
sway on a breeze
stand still & silent

White flowers are so difficult to photograph! Yours wins the prize.

Beautiful photos, as always.

i love the first one - probably because i am often surrounded by the hibiscus and the white is something new to the eye. so much to catch up on today!!!

I've always loved photos of one flower. They're each so unique (just as you and I are—I can hear you whisper this in my ear). I love the analogy in this post: blooming and wilting, growing and withering...

beth said...
