Embryo II

Pillow placentas
Smile and unfold joyful
Fingers innocent


Creation said...

Visiting your blog for the first time... fallen in love, already!
Blogrolled you!

Beautiful Pic Jason and an equally magnificent Haiku.

Its little fingers are reaching out to the world and are certainly spreading smile and joy to all.

This pic is even better than the first one.

Love the haiku...taken with the photo....You are a talented man I think

the walking man said...

lay my head
on my loves pregnant belly
let me sleep comfortably
with my babes.
We all can share
the placental sac
as one.

This is visually stunning. Your photography is fantastic. You should start to think about creating an exhibit. Beautiful. I love this follow up to Embryo. I am in awe of anyone who can write haiku well. Bravo!

Catvibe said...

Gorgeous shot. I want to live in this flower. I love these colors together and think I should try to paint something using only those two colors. Amazing, truly. Love the haiku.

J said...

Jason, the photos look like paintings, and the words have that feel--smooth, running over you, like a rich, thick tint. Gorgeous.

Sarah Hina said...

This photo brings us so close. The crocus does feel like a soft, enveloping womb. So, so beautiful.

And the words make me smile in return. :) Spring reborn.

Unfolding indeed, reaching for the Sun! Lovely.

Barbara Martin said...

Beautiful, exquisite flowers to compliment a lovely poem.

Margaret said...

What another amazing shot! Just beautiful!
The photo together with the haiku awaken in me "Motherly protection".

I see my arms folding around my 3 daughters and their tiny fingers reaching out to touch the world for the first time.

Creation, thank you!! I look forward to seeing much more of you.

Aniket, I never knew that the interior of the crocus was so intricate and interesting! I enjoyed taking these.

Linda, thank you for the high praise. :)

Walking Man, that was seriously beautiful! More touching than the short verse I wrote.

Karen, I toyed with the idea of doing a curious kind of children's book with photography. If I can gather enough shots that are high enough quality, maybe I'll give it a try. Thanks for the encouragement!

Catvibe, this one is a visual feast, no? I'd love to see a painting focused down to that essence.

J, your descriptions are getting better than my posts. ;) Thanks!

Sarah, all births come with huge promise and joy mixed with a little fear. Spring is the perfect time to break out into the world. Thank you! I'm glad for the smile. :)

Charles, cool!

Aggie, if I had more light, I might have tried for a little more.

Barbara, I like how small journies can be just a breathtaking as large ones.

Margaret, what a beautiful thought! Give them a big hug for me. :)

The photo is absolutely beautiful!!!

Sorry I've been away! I have been so busy I haven't caught my breath yet! I'm crazed til the end of April, but loved seeing your beautiful photos!

Geraldine said...

I agree with the above comments. Amazing photo and delicate, evocative words to accompany. Well done Jason!

Linda S. Socha said...

I can visualize Catvibe in that photo!!

Ello, I understand. :) It's great to see you, though! And thank you for the kind words.

Geraldine, it's fun to make small discoveries like this one. Thanks!

Linda, I think you're right. I can see her style.
