grew its own forest
altering the dimensions of the world

What wonderful words and picture to match.
Love this! A child’s-eye view.
A winner because I am crazy about moss 🙂
Moss and lichens always grab my attention
A beautiful reminder to notice the smaller things around us. Thank you for sharing the wonderful words and picture 🙂
What a wonderful world!
Lol… and now mosses added to lichens! I like a lot both them and you are able to show them very well. Microcosmus & macrocosmus …
This is lovely.

Wow! That’s a great shot.
You have wonderful talent for paying attention, being astonished, and telling about it! (with thanks to Mary Oliver’s lines)
Thank you Mary Ann. _/\_
This is both profound and lovely, and gives me a renewed admiration for the many and varied mosses that proliferate in my own garden and the woodlands around my home a lovely meditation on scale.
Thank you for the way you practice and disseminate your art, and for the informative explanation of Ekphrastic poetry that you offer on your Web site (in the About section) and which you have helped strengthen as my own favorite among the poetic forms I in which I can only say I dabble. Your individual art works and your overall practice are both inspirations to me in my life overall, and in my particular practices.
I hope you are sufficiently compensated for your work by your art sales and the new arrangements you recently announced on your Web site, and that my occasionally sharing my favorites from among your daily emails contributes some small amount to your visibility, and perhaps even a little to your compensation.
In coupled admiration and gratitude,
