Peacefully resting on the best green leaf... at times there's only the hushed silence of droplets of rain caught in the rays of an early morning sun! Life wriggles on....time to explore the big green space! For some it's a balancing act as they juggle between choices--- this insect or that!! Sneak a peek between eats... while I merrily dangle on a leaf! ...before I fly off again... Life's on a roll! All this lushness eggs me on---- to increase and multiply! Let me enjoy the view before I flit off again to gorge on mosquito larvae! All's well in the bamboo world!
Glory be to God for dappled things- For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings; Landscape plotted and pieced--fold, fallow, and plough; And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim. All things counter, original, spare, strange; Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?) With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim; He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him. Gerard Manley Hopkins
The first flowering shrub I planted on our land
Every flower is a soul blooming in Nature.-Gerard De Nerval
Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself? -Henry David Thoreau
