Fascinating………..what are the white and yellow flowers, please?
Dicentra – “Dutchmans breeches” after the shape of the flower. Native woodland plant in the northeast.
We have a creeper here known as Dutchman’s pipe(shaped like a Meerschaum pipe) but the Dutchman’s breeches I have never seen or heard of.
these flowers are so unusual and pretty –
What is your latitude? Your spring is about a month and a half later than ours.
I’ve enjoyed this blog so much! Your poems are fresh and inspired! I look forward to them in my inbox among the many, many corporate newsletters. You’ve reminded me that I can enjoy poetry again. It’s much more fun than in high school when it’s grueling to dissect the poems for imagery, tone, cadence, etc. To be fair, there are several artistic blogs that interest me, but your ability to parse something meaningful down to just a few words has held my interest. We live in an overwhelming time!

I’m in Northern New Hampshire. We’ve had quite a delayed and lingering spring this year. Thank you so much for your kind words.

We live in overwhelming times indeed.
The power of meditation and enlightenment blossoms into the sweetest poetry. You will observe that Dhammapada is more of poetry…
I love this!
Faith was the Unsurpassed Way of the Buddha Shakyamuni. But now maitreya will come to open new doors according to the times.
