Poetry Jam "After Blossom's Bloom"

Margaret Bednar's iPhone Photography


After Blossom's Bloom

Cherish the simple
See grandness in everyday
Embrace life's seasons.

After blossom's bloom
before glorious colors
Value this moment.

This is for Poetry Jam "What Do YOU Value?"  Obviously this topic could have been very long and heavy, but I'm busy wrapping up summer with my children and getting ready for the new school year.   I was at the barn the other day and gazed upon this tree and thought "I can't WAIT until fall when it is in it displays it's glorious colors!"  .... but look at it NOW.  Perhaps not quite as showy, but stunning non the same.   Made me think about this prompt, about how we look forward to vacations, holidays... but the everyday is every bit as precious.  (or so I tell my self as I'm pondering next year's vacation :)

Indeed important to cherish EACH day, not looking backward to what once was and not wishing it were another time. There is so much to treasure in every day.

Love the message of embracing the now! And as always, such a gorgeous photograph! I could waste so many hours kicked back under that tree...

Thank you, all! I wonder how old this gorgeous tree is - Not hard to take a nice photo when the subject is so stunning. :)
