Flower Poem

The past week the weather was a bit better however i did not took my camera on the road but stayed inside to play with my pictures to see what I can do more with it. I wanted to try something different instead of color just for fun. And browsing on the internet I found this beautiful poem and just wanted to share it with you.If you like to see some of my animal portraits in black and white just take a look here.
Song of the Flower XXIII by Khalil Gibran
I am a kind word uttered and repeated 
By the voice of Nature; 
I am a star fallen from the 
Blue tent upon the green carpet. 
I am the daughter of the elements 
With whom Winter conceived; 
To whom Spring gave birth; I was 
Reared in the lap of Summer and I 
Slept in the bed of Autumn. 
At dawn I unite with the breeze 
To announce the coming of light; 
At eventide I join the birds 
In bidding the light farewell. 
The plains are decorated with 
My beautiful colors, and the air 
Is scented with my fragrance. 
As I embrace Slumber the eyes of 
Night watch over me, and as I 
Awaken I stare at the sun, which is 
The only eye of the day. 
I drink dew for wine, and hearken to 
The voices of the birds, and dance 
To the rhythmic swaying of the grass. 
I am the lover's gift; I am the wedding wreath; 
I am the memory of a moment of happiness; 
I am the last gift of the living to the dead; 
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow. 
But I look up high to see only the light, 
And never look down to see my shadow. 
This is wisdom which man must learn.


 Have a nice weekend!
