Many years ago, my physical therapist put us into one of those trances:

lie down flat

make sure all parts are touching the floor

close your eyes

see only black

Move your right hand

Your index finger is your eye

Start seeing through your finger-eye

 

Well, there I was, on the roof, with just the blue sky above me.

Then I recalled there were other ways to view the sky.

I focused on my right index finger, and started seeing the sky from different points of view.

This was fun…..

Hey! This is fun..

And if I clean my finger nails,

I’ll be able to see better.

Not so pretty from under here

Some call this the sun agava

Cactus family

But very friendly

Not sure this rose

Is happy to be seen

From so close

I could get into trouble about this image..

Nature’s Tower of Babylon

(If you look very very closely…

You’ll see Noah and his family

Racing up towards God)

Kumquat may

We shall change from green to orange

And then

Just before we are plucked from the tree

And turned into marmalade

The parrots will quietly screech onto our tree

And devour us

A cacophony of colours

Against the piano of blue

Primary and secondary

Go so well

Hand in hand

Stalk to leaf

Margarita Flowerova

The Bolshoi Ballet Belle

How she stands out

In the invisible spotlight

Of Nature

My Guardian Angel

I named her Violet

It just came to me

From the way she just watched over me

Always there

Taking care

Listening

Loving

Rare

I call this

Hidden passion

I know why

But I can’t explain

Please don’t ask

25

I tried to cover the sky

To hide the blue

But Nature doesn’t work like that

There’s room for us all

In Nature

But that’s exactly

What I wanted to say..

Nature can be so unfair..

No cacophony here

The colours are clear

No confusion

No illusion

No question

Suggestion

No denial

No trial

Nothing to do

Just Red Green

And Blue
