I thought about writing about oppressive heat and humidity, but I couldn't get more than a few words in before I was at once depressed and bored of the topic. I'm one of those crazy people that misses winter as soon as the first heat wave hits. I decided to look elsewhere for inspiration.
Recently I've been going through my photo archives for images I could use for posts (either as-is or with some photoshop fun), and realized I have a good number of decent quality photos of flowers. So I ran with that as a topic and then went back to actually figure out which photo to use. I enjoy a good macro shot, so it was a bit tricky finding one I liked that actually encompassed more than a solitary flower or two.
Flowers lined up neatly in a row
forever doing as they’re told
Watching the sun rise
until it falls
Drinking in the late spring rain
the excess falling like tears
shake the trees above
and skitter the more timid creatures
The flowers stay rooted
and sensing darkness
close themselves to the world
