I Saw Sunday

Life force from these buds bursts from the screen. A triangle of knapped flint arrowhead leaves pinpoints  us, the  observer, to bear witness to their beauty...


Green spirals seek anchorage for a scarlet bug...  and a plane hums by overhead, drawing a straight line in the summer sky.

Thanks to Susannah for this prompt, which makes us think more about what we see, and to Monkey Man, who challenges us to say something in 160 characters. By judicious editing, the first paragraph fits this criteria!

  9. I think I shall call this the camera summer. It is amazing how the tool becomes the eye and then the words start lining up to be heard. Love your photos Jinksy, life curled so tightly, seeking to burst its meager boundaries like the plane flying free in impossible flight.

  10. What is the plant in the first photo Jinksy? You describe it perfectly, but I don't think I know what it is (mint family maybe?). It is almost as beautiful as your words!

    And thinks for the pic! Can I share? Crediting it to you of course! If not, perhaps I will just paste up my refreshing artwork on my desk to cool me on hot summer days. :)

  11. Even without the photos this would be wonderfully visual. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160.

  12. I love this: 'knapped flint arrowhead' (once I'd looked up knapped!) Excellent description and nicely observed photos.
