The Bloom of Winter....II

For Dolores (FotoGallery Dolores) about making choices :-))


It was cold and rainy yesterday.
Cocooned in blues, the dark clouds cast me away…
So, I got my camera and went out to play…
To embrace whatever I had; for this special day…

Up to the hills I climbed, hoping to see some reflections of the sun
Filling my heart with joy and not letting despair pulling me down..
I made my choice; suddenly felt like a colorful butterfly
Dancing, kissing every flower, trying to reach up, up to the sky…

Then I saw this tiny white bloom on a small lonely tree,
Smiling as if, she was greeting me…
Couldn’t believe my eyes…a bloom at this time of the year ?..
Paused for a long time; taking all the love in and departing fear..

Ran for my camera, I clicked and clicked in ectasy
Certified the miracle which was standing there, right in front of me !…
Floating in pleasure, I honored myself and the bloom of winter
And let the magic refill my heart forever….

    This is very beautiful Canan. Your dedication to your friend is fantastic. I can see why she loves it. Than you for being you too. It is a wonderful poem too. I like the words: "to embrace whatever I had for this special day" It is very thought provoking and speaks to the heart of a "wildlife photographer" you may know :-)))
