Flowers are a huge part of my summer as I am surrounded by them both domestic and wild. I share with you some of my photos of flowers and poems from myself as well as thoughts and poems from other authors. Hope your summer is also filled with the colors that flowers can bring.
From out of the black she comes
A flower as bright as a star
Her colours bold and brilliant
She radiates her love afar
- Author Here I Am/Carrie
What a desolate place would be a world without a flower!
It would be a face without a smile, a feast without a welcome.
Are not flowers the stars of the earth, and are not our stars
the flowers of the heaven.
- A.J. Balfour
It is at the edge of a petal that love waits.
- William Carlos Williams
The Earth Laughs in Flowers
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Since Iris is the Greek goddess for the Messenger of Love, her sacred
flower is considered the symbol of communication and messages.
Greek men would often plant an iris on the graves of their beloved
women as a tribute to the goddess Iris, whose duty it was to
take the souls of women to the Elysian fields.
- Hana No Monogatari
Each flower a soul opening out to nature.
- Gerald De Nerval
Where flowers bloom so does hope.
Who would have thought it possible that a tiny little flower
could preoccupy a person so completely that there simply
wasn't room for any other thought....
- Sophie Scholl
In my garden there is a large place for sentiment.
My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.
The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.
- Abram L. Urban
Flowers are love's truest language.
- Park Benjamin
If you pass by the colour purple in a field and
don't notice it, God gets real pissed off.
- Alice Walker
Lone and erect, beneath light's primal flood,
A lily! and pure as any one of you.
Little flower, but if I could understand, what you are,
root and all in all, I should know what God and man is.
From the dark she came and into the light she went
Stretching, stretching towards the sun...
she reaches for the heavens above
But grounded to the earth
she always stays.....
-author I Am Here/Carrie
So to everyone
Good Morning… Good Afternoon… Good Night…
Whatever it is to you
I Hope you have a bloomen one…..
Here I Am/Carrie
