Sunday Beauty

posted in: Photography | 0

My life is a good kind of full and summer is flying by. I’ve been spending all of my spare time studying, learning, and making new kinds of images. And through it all I take time out to seek out the things that fill me with joy. Last week I spent time at Como Conservatory to make photographs of flowers, butterflies, and the Japanese garden.

A Little Sunday Beauty

Here are some of those images and a poem by Hafiz that I read recently.

All the Hemispheres

Leave the familiar for a while.

Let your senses and bodies stretch out

 

Like a welcomed season

Onto the meadow and shores and hills.

 

Open up to the Roof.

Make a new watermark on your excitement

And love.

 

Like a blooming night flower,

Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness

And giving

Upon our intimate assembly.

 

Change rooms in your mind for a day.

 

All the hemispheres in existence

Lie beside an equator

In your heart.

 

Greet Yourself

In your thousand other forms

As you mount the hidden tide and travel

Back home.

 

All the hemispheres in heaven

Are sitting around a fire

Chatting

 

While stitching themselves together

Into the Great Circle inside of

You.

May you walk in beauty.
