every leaf bud revels
in the space
reserved for their expansion

Love spring and its promise of hope! Thanks for your words and photo…
I nice touch of optimism
Very nice, and happy spring 🙂
Very interesting image, Seedbud.
Wonderful view and soon to be all green.
I could cry – when in my youth I needed to hear this, I thought the attached rules were part of the story. Parasites can look just like preachers and leaders. Very profound and rich with solace, Seedbud. I really appreciate what you are doing.
sorry for what looks like an ambiguous post from me – In my youth, there were rules attached to the space I took up. I had no idea they hadn’t grown naturally with the law of nature that gave me a chance to be here on earth, just like all living things. It was a cruel discovery to realize the rigid rules I’d grown up treating as sacred, were merely things others wanted me to believe. Is this a little clearer? Trying to say something I’ve never said before…
Niaih, It always brings me such pleasure to read your thoughtful and insightful comments. I so appreciate the deepness of what you share. Both comments make total sense to me. “parasites can look like preachers and leaders” that phrase echoes. I too grew up with the notion that I shouldn’t take up too much space. Mother nature teaches differently. Very, very Best, Seedbud.
love every single one of your posts. it’s like the earth speaks through you.
Amazing how so few words can convey so much. Really resonates with me. Thanks!
I never thought about it that way…when the buds are on the trees and space is reserved for their expansion. Very cool.
Peaceful and lovely
Very beautiful photo shot!
The hills are alive….!
Loving that expansion!
Eternity in real life. That large landscape is eternity to the leaf bud. Did I understand your poetic image correctly?
And my homesickness runs amok again …
Wonderful with its “multi-level” message.
