Spring Morning

O day—if I could cup my hands and drink of you,
And make this shining wonder be
A part of me!
O day! O day!
You lift and sway your colors on the sky
Till I am crushed with beauty. Why is there
More of reeling sunlit air
Than I can breathe? Why is there sound
In silence? Why is a singing wound
About each hour?
And perfume when there is no flower?
O day! O Day! How may I press
Nearer to loveliness?

I Capture The Present For Future Musing   Leave a comment

I move closure to
Mastering the medium
With each photograph.

The camera’s eye
Reveals an uncharted world
Waiting to be launched.

Time is running out,
So I capture the present
For future musing.

There they were, just there
Yellow fireworks shooting off
In a field of green.

Some beautiful things
Like small desert wildflowers
Hide among the rocks.

The London Rocket is a naturalized weed native to Europe. It is most common in riparian areas, fields, drainage ditches, and in vacant lots. Because of the timing of desert winter rains this year, this weed seems to be everywhere. “The common name ‘London rocket’ comes from its abundance after the Great Fire of London in 1666. It was also noticed on bomb sites after the Blitz.”
