...all that it does...







Quiet
and unnoticed
the flower
of your whole life
has opened
its perfect petals.

~William Carlos Williams




The chestnut tree is all that it does.

~W.B. Yeats

  1. Oh how I admire the words draped onto the stem leading up to the flower! This rendition makes me want to reach out and feel the softness I see- I truly have a tactile sense of wanting to touch it :) Great quotes too- thanks for the Monday smiles :)

  5. Hi My friend
    I love that line:
    The chestnut tree is all that it does.
    It's a bit like the zen saying when sitting sit.
    I hope you are well and busy...has the hand mended?

  10. Lovely image and words. We just planted an American chestnut tree in our woods as part of an attempt to bring them back.

  11. I love how the words creep along the stem of this flower...growing and opening up as the petals do. Lovely words to accompany this pretty photo.
