Infant Galaxy

Purchase this print here: [link]

The tinkling of glass,
Of those once vapors
Fallen fresh as snow
And fleeting in their stay --
For like diamonds
Upon greenest blades
They migrate from leaf
to stem
to soil;
They spiral in a fashion
Of shimmering suns . . .
And on those fronds
Fuse like stars
In an infant galaxy.
In time's passage
They shall again
Abscond to air
to sky
to Heaven,
Vapors once again.

Great capture! :clap: I wonder how those leaves can support such large water drops without bending more than they are, must be a really stiff plant? Anyways, :+fav:

It's not that big of a plant, to be honest, but it is a pretty hearty one :D
