allow yourself


in this bright that is sun . even weeds teach me to sink low

they are strong when weakness prevails . twigs bend . do not break

a field full of swaying dancers creating a summer hum with me knee deep

in a place of no pressure . no concern . no should .. just being . in the light and song

I love weeds. So many of them really are so pretty. Queen Anne's lace is a favorite of mine!

Personally I love weeds. Most of them are so beautiful and have a strength I admire.

Beautiful post Elk...Just the other day Jim and I were driving and he stopped so I could get some shots of these exact same "weeds".
Have a wonderful day my friend.

Ohhhhhhh. I am watching the light you caught on the beautiful weeds and it is making me so very happy.

I'd like to be in that place with you and the weeds.

I'm pursuing that place of no shoulds or coulds but just trying to be open to the natural flow and rhythm of life right now.

Bending. Being.

And these photos caste aside my weariness and makes my soul dance.

I have a thing for 'weeds'. I think yours are glorious x

Amy said...

I too have an odd fondness for flowering weeds. When I was little, I would collect them and make bouquets, and was crushed when my mother didn't want weeds in the house. Now I photograph them for their rugged and unexpected beauty.
