This is a manipulated photo, created by Diddums:


I went blog surfing a few days ago and found an interesting collaboration between a photographer and a poet. Asked Diddums if she would be interested in doing something similar. She agreed and promptly sent me this photo. Without further ado, let me introduce you to


He rests, leaning against
potted hyacinth,
perhaps contemplating
the color purple,
its depth and breath
of meaning. How it speaks
of personal power,
the ability to move self
into countless possibilities.

Hush, we must not wake him
before his time. His kind
are a symbol of introspection,
withdrawing into silence
to seek illumination from within.

Think he dreams of sweet things
that grow in full summer
sunlight. Honey to fuel his way
as he travels from darkness
into daylight, to nurture
his need to grow, to know
even more, that he might store,
then share the message of his own
hyacinth power.

    That’s beautiful, thank you, and so quick! The hyacinth bear is delighted… maybe tomorrow we’ll get up to find the bears have started a poetry club. 🙂

    Thank you for sending him to me. This was great fun and wonderfully synchronistic to boot. I think a teddy bear poetry club would be delightful, maybe they’ll invite me to join? I have been told that I am quite stuffed at odd moments, lol. We will do this again, soon.

    Already lining up my next contribution! Well, off to bed now, really, but I’m thinking about what might suit.

    Looking forward to it, lol, even though I’ve had a look at the abstracts and fractals, that could really mean some work.
