Carpe Diem First Winter Retreat 2016 the kick off - find the silence
creep across my heart
I long for spring
gnarled branches stretch
naked in evening twilight
welcoming roosting birds
This is the last day of the 30 day winter retreat Find the Silence. If your looking for more try reading some of the wonderful submissions at Carpe Diem. The link for the retreat posts is at the top of this post. Hope you enjoyed.
Today’s beauty came this evening. Five moonflowers were open in the garden. These beautiful white flowers look like morning glories on steroids. One fully opened flower is about my hand spread This is a highly fragrant plant and attracts sphinx moths who pollinate it. Seeing the flowers got me thinking of the mystery of insects, moths and bats that come out at night to drink from sweet smelling blossoms. It is amazing that as one set of flowers and insects bed down when the sunsets another set is taking over the night shift. There is such a delicate yet beautiful between plants and animals, birds and insects.
