It was cold and rainy yesterday.
Cocooned in blues, the dark clouds cast me away.
So; I got my camera and went out to play
To embrace whatever I had, for this special day.
Up to the hills I climbed, hoping to see some reflections of the sun
Filling my heart with joy and not letting despair pulling me down.
I made my choice; suddenly felt like a colorful butterfly
Dancing, kissing every flower, trying to reach up, up to the sky.
Then I saw this tiny white bloom on a small lonely tree,
Smiling as if, she was greeting me.
Couldn’t believe my eyes…a bloom at this time of the year ?..
Paused for a long time; taking all the love in and departing fear.
Ran for my camera, I clicked and clicked in ecstasy
Certified the miracle which was standing there, right in front of me .
Floating in pleasure, I honored myself and the bloom of winter
And let the magic refill my heart forever….
"And my aim in my life is to make pictures and drawings, as many and as well as I can; then, at the end of my life, I hope to pass away, looking back with love and regret, and thinking, " Oh, the pictures I might have made.."
Vincent Van Gogh
FOR ME, AN IMAGE IS NOT JUST A TWO DIMENSIONAL PICTURE..THE FEELINGS YOU GET, TAKE YOU IN, AND GIVE YOU SPACE FOR IMAGINATION..THEN YOU BECOME ONE WITH THE PICTURE. IT IS A JOURNEY, AN EMOTIONAL AND EXCITING EXCURSION OF DISCOVERY...
I saw that I have a limited place for my garden in FC.So I picked up all my flowers and put them together on my first page...
Thank you so much MIKE , ILIDO and FONS for this creation....
I am very honored and I will take good care of my "friendship garden¨ as long as I live..
