you are always
and so amazingly new
in your selfless sharing
You help make the woodlands
with joyous eternity
[Note: The common name for this Illinois woodland wildflower is Spring Beauty. The entire width of the flower is less than 1/2 inch (around one centimeter wide). This wildflower is still rather common throughout Illinois. It, fortunately, can survive more environmental disruption than most wildflowers. Its eternal essence has nothing to do with its persistence in Illinois or elsewhere.]
I’ve been surprised again and again at the complex beauty displayed by the tiniest flowers. These are especially delightful.
Yes, Linda, in the little and in humility… there is often great beauty! 🙂
Lovely, both the poem and the wildflower.
Thank you, CC; they sure do add more magic to the woods! 🙂

I love the tiny flowers. Especially like to examine them with a hand lens to see the intricacies invisible to the naked eye.
Too many never notice that whatsoever!
Your image is a Spring beauty and what a beautiful Spring poem! ❤
Really appreciate that, Donna! 🙂 (All birds are the regal ancestors of theropod dinosaurs.)
