What's on my mind, what's on yours?

Nothing left of spring
The last ant out past curfew
Regret? No. Never.

My passion is honeydew
And milkweed forest
Embrace what is possible

Moonlight reveals self
A silver crescent
Giving rise to lust

Spore and seed explode at dusk
Frog chorus echoes
Dreaming journey, fire, and light


Photos found here: in the lens of Gina Marie's camera.

Peony flowers are edible, I have discovered. And they are beloved by ants, who delight in their sweet secretions (exhibit um, three, I think, peony bud with honeydew). I am fascinated by ants and love watching them. I spent a good half hour watching that little fellow. He was all alone in the dying bloom, his tiny feet padding about in the sex of the flower. I wanted to know more about his relationship with Ms. P. Here 'tis: Peonies and Ants!!!

Absolutely lovely. I'm fascinated by ants too. Have been since I was a kid.

Ah, beautiful photographs and writing. "Embrace what is possible." Love that!

Hi Craig,

I'm so happy to know that you're a friend of the ants :)!!

Marina! Thanks for stopping by and for your nice comment. All things are possible. I truly believe that. And it feels good to hug them (preferrably while naked). Grins.

Wow, amazing haiku, Gina. A perfect illustration of how restriction in form allows the sensual to blossom!

And what lovely blossoms, too :-).

How was that barbecue and whisky?

i don't know about your neck of the woods but it is the most perfect day here (a day after your post, sure, but hey...). it's like getting a present that you didn't expect.

Poetry of word and sight! You are an artist, my dear! You see the world through a lens that is denied others, and you bring it to us on a gleaming platter!

Hi Donna,

Thank you so much!!! The bbq ribs and whiskey were tasty! Perfect for this amazing weather we've been having out here in the Pac. NW. It was grey this morning and I didn't quite know what to do!

Hi Sommer! Unfortunately, I spent all the time that I should have been pulling weeds taking pictures. Oh well!

BAK! Oh, thank you! A special lens, eh? Seeing the world through multicolored glasses does make things interesting. I'm so glad you like my attempts at translation.
