“I’m growing stronger than you know,” said she,
“You’re not,” said he, “and I know what is best.”
“I’m ready to break wildly free,” said she,
“I see, but you must wait, your patience test.”
“I’m eager to embrace my destiny,”
He countered, “You’re a wee one, let it rest.”
“My path leads skyward, bathed in clarity”
He sighed; she couldn’t, wouldn’t be repressed.
This lighthearted poem was prompted by the stark contrast between the focal point of this frame, a newly emerging stalk of lavender; against the out-of-focus backdrop of weathered and well-established oaks and elms.
Wonderful response to the Daily Post’s photo challenge. Personally, I love purple flowers, especially lavenders. Great photography perspective and poem.
Love the little poem. Great shot with a blurred background and the subject in sharp focus.
I love playing with depth of field shots. Thank you.
Wonderful combination of focused and unfocused!
Love this poem as I love lavender also, I miss my growing lavender, nice to see it , thanks love eileen
I knew you’d recognize it. This was a small plant I got at the farmers’ market and it is really shooting up and branching out. Though I transplanted into larger pot, I may need to find a permanent home in a sunny spot on the yard. Love you!
