Understanding



Forms sculpted into hidden forms. Your hues pirouette into shadows.

Whisper to my fingertips.

I will discover you.

A delicate poem just to match the flowers :) Thank you for the nice moment of reading, Jason.

Short and sweet. Like a kiss you blow across the room.

Wonderful photo - The dark background is a perfect contrast to the warmth in the pink. Beautiful, delicate , female and yet quite bold.

Your words mirror this exactly. Light, elegant and honest.

This puts me in mind of a Georgia O'Keefe I think.

Geraldine said...

Very evocative words. Well done Jason. The photo is very dramatic and erotic too. Lovely!

Beautiful photo!

Jaye Wells said...

Wow, that's beautiful.

Jamie Ford said...

That's lovely. And I'm jealous since it snowed again today...

What a gorgeous magenta moth orchid! A luminous, sex pink Phalaenopsis, beautifully captured. My favourite parts are the little filamentous tendrils at the bottom of the labellum, that give the bloom a dragon-like appearance, and the mesmerizing stripes that guide the pollinating moth (and the eye) inwards, inwards, towards the very centre of the flower. I love Spring - it's orchid show season and the nurseries and flower shops are bursting with pristine princesses. Did you buy anything? I never can resist but, then again, I am totally obessed, of course.

Szelsofa, thanks for sharing it. :)

Chris, what a nice way to describe it! Hearing words like these spoken to you is a gift. Kind of the savior for the soul in Only Questions piece.

Janey, light, elegant, and honest...I loved that! The essence of how they were intended. **I darknened the background of the photo in order to bring more attention to the flower. Glad you liked it.

Geraldine, yes, there is somethng very sensual and carnal about orchids.

Beth, orchids can definitely inspire a little heat. If I stare too long, I can get lost in them.

Chris, what an intriguing story!! Thanks for sharing.

Anti-Wife, thanks. :) I got to go a little nuts at the gardens.

Jaye, Longwood Gardens is a beautiful place. It was established by the DuPont family. I'll be sharing more pictures now and again.

Jamie, more snow?! Dear God, man, that's plain wrong!

Electric Orchid Hunter, I was WAITING for you, my friend. And you do not disappoint. Thank you for the background on the orchid! I still marvel at how each species is matched to a certain pollenating insect. I have a bunch more pictures. The orchid display at the gardens was fantastic. As for buying any, I'm afraid I'd kill them. I'm not bad at vegetable gardening and forestry. With indoor plants, though, I suck.

Remiman, nothing wrong with that. :) There was a lot of intimacy, both in the photo and the thought.

Angelique, thanks for feeling the spirit. =)

Huggs, Geraldine

Miladysa, thanks. :)

Aine, even in the smallest place lies the expanse of a universe.

Geraldine, Happy Easter to you too! We hope you and your family have a wonderful day.
