Music in Pink



Flowers Music to the Soul….



“Flowers are

the music of the ground


From earth’s lips

spoken without sound.”        Edwin Curran




A Chance Discovery

I discovered that first poem by chance while looking for a poem for this photo.

I liked Curran’s phrasing;  how he painted with words.



I looked a little further, to see what else he might have in wait for us.

Finding another of his poems just as appealing,   just a little bit lengthier.



I’ve included  Curran’s  “The Painted Hills of Arizona”     even though its not flower themed.

Still, its lyrical and lovely and fills the soul.





The Painted Hills of Arizona 

The rainbows all lie crumpled on these hills,
The red dawns scattered on their colored sills;

These hills have caught the lightning in its flight,
Caught colors from the skies of day and night

And shine with shattered stars and suns they hold
Dyed yellow, red and purple, blue and gold.

Red roses seem within their marble blown
A painted garden chiselled in the stone;

The rose and violet trickling through their veins
Where they drop their bright curtain to the plains

A ramp of rock and granite, jeweled and brightening
Like some great colored wall of lightning!

Skies of Eidolon -Night

Bold color on the Mountain

Rose’s Tears of Joy


Daybreak – a beautiful Pause in between the dark slumber of eve and the hustle of phones, horns,  meetings and deadlines…… of the new day.


Daybreak – you feel more alive at daybreak,  senses are engaged; there’s less competition fighting for your attention.

Sunsets are gorgeous;  but, tired from the day’s work and with all the evening’s  bustle of noises that compete to muffle out the full experience, it seems Less filling than daybreak.

Stillness at Daybreak

Daybreak  – a time and place I go to  catch a break.  In the stillness  and  the silent joy.


Daybreak  –   Splendour of the dawn…… what a lovely phrase.

Zareth Shahar, means  “Splendour of the Dawn.”  There is an actual place named,  Zareth Shahar. It’s an ancient city located along the eastern shores of the Dead Sea, but little remains of the town except a few stone ruins scattered about.

My Heart, In Serenity


All photos were taken very early, this morning peeking over into the neighbour’s rose garden with my Canon Rebel 600D using Canon macro lens 100mm f2.8L

I especially liked the soft focus photo My Heart, In Serenity.  It seemed to resonate the most with me on how and what I wanted to convey in this post.

(A big thank you to my followers, readers, sharers, likers!   I’m getting closer to my 12 month goal for followers,… nearly there!!     Thank You.)



And enjoy the splendour of dawn found At Daybreak.
