poppies v, we must be freed of ourselves over and over

  1. I fall apart over and over and over, and then,
    I put myself back together again and again and again. That's what nature teaches me in this photo. Perfect. xo

  2. Somewhere, poppies will rise and be counted.
    On my hillside, they volunteered only once.
    In the California desert, wild flowers were most visible after the ground had been scorched by wildfires and winter rains were abundant.
    I've actually planted seeds and starters every year with little success.

    1. rosaria! what you say about the wild flowers after wildfires! how is it that it takes us so long to learn when the intelligent proof is all around us?

      these poppies cropped up last year beside the house we are yet renting, still waiting to move south. i saw them from an upstairs window reflected in the neighbour's window. nobody, as far as i know, did anything. they found their own way.

      while i will be happy to move, i can't but be grateful for experiencing these flowers here again.

    1. manik, neither freedom nor constraint are as simple as they seem. they're married with one another. but yes, however the seasons present, i'm game:)

    1. glenn, i reckon the circle is eternal, whether we're conscious of it or not. i feel pretty ok about that.

  5. Yes. We must drop our leaves so we can begin anew.

please, if you say anything, have it be of the world, not me.
