SOF Observed: symbiosis

it's a month of gardens. some days after joining the garden party in Karyn Eisler's Living ?s, i followed a bilingual poetry link - and clicking onwards, came across a page that started with a garden poem from Rilke:

"Spring has returned. The earth is like a child that knows poems.”
—Rainer Maria Rilke

a bit further down, i found this invite to send garden photos + wisdom: "We’d love to see your photos of garden spaces and places that serve as sources of contemplation and inspiration for new ways of looking at and thinking about the deeper meaning of things." - SOF, Learning from Your Garden - and Sharing.

so i returned to my files. looked for images and words. and sent them to SOF.
they are up now, here: Spring Growth / symbiosis

the tulip photos are from last year - the tulips hadn't opened yet when i sent the mail. they are open now, though - you can see their images in the Living ?s garden party if you scroll down a bit, or just scroll down 4 posts in this blog, to 'blue'.

now i wished i could show them this page, and tell them of the virtual places they crossed while growing here in the garden.
