Macro photography of nature is the most inspiring to me. The mindfulness required to notice those small details is what most often feeds my poetry. These photos were taken during this past summer in Reno or winter in Palm Desert.

After a busy weekend for many of us celebrating a holiday, I thought it would be good to start the new week with a moment’s reflection.

I took the photos of the Yucca and Smoke Bush at neighborhood homes the rest are from chez nous.

Here’s a Mr. Linky to this post in case you want to add a link to some photos of your garden. Or perhaps you’ll be inspired to write a poem based on a photo from your own garden or, if you like, use one of these. Take a few moments to enjoy the beauty of nature before charging back to whatever awaits you at work or wherever the day will take you.

An aside–a special thank you to Laurie Kolp who took the time to read and review my novel, “Winter is Past,” on Amazon.com

Oops. Had this scheduled for the wrong date!
