Unadulterated & authentic…modest yet ornate (Pur et authentique … modeste mais orné)

The beauty of simplicity

I walk and I see
The beauty of simplicity
That one buttercup standing out
Shooting upward among short green grass
Calling out, screaming out for my discernment
I answer in spite of myself and approach as a somnambulist,
Hand stretched out ready to stroke the stem, the petals, gently
Guiding it toward my tool of appreciation, the more I use it on the
Small, the further is its individuality magnified… I close onto its delicacy,
Its silky petals, the brightness of unadulterated yellow, the intricacies of its
Nerve map, the bulge of its heart and discover the secret of purity.

Je marche et je vois
La beauté de la simplicité
Cet unique bouton d’or saillir
Jaillir vers le haut parmi l’herbe
Courte et verte criant, hurlant pour
Mon discernement, je réponds malgré moi
Et approche comme un somnambule, main tendue
Prêt à carresser la tige, les pétales, le guidant
Doucement vers mon outil d’appréciation, plus je l’utilise
Sur l’insignifiant, plus est amplifié son individualité… je ferme
Sur sa délicatesse, ses pétales soyeux, la luminosité du jaune pur, les subtilités
De sa carte de nerfs, le renflement de son coeur et découvre le secret de la pureté.

Butterfly rescue

Stuck with foam & sand

Strolling along the sea our eyes were caught by
Your struggle with sand and foam flapping uselessly
Your altered colored wings…we then gently held
Them between our thumb & index to place you under
The protection of the dunes where you clung to the
Dry weeds grasping with all your might succeeding
To flap your wings once again rendering your freedom

And ours…
