Oh! Exquisite rose!

Today, I want to share this exquisite Fuchsia rose that was given to me when I had accidentally dressed the table with what do you know… yes, a Fuchsia tablecloth.
It gave me the perfect background.
Following for nearly two years very talented photographers on WordPress gave me the right angles for perfect shots.
I work with what I consider a basic camera which is a Canon digital IXUS 95 IS but following the advice of a blogger I exploited to a maximum its potential & come up with quite good results but,

I’ll let you judge for yourselves these close-ups in the hope that it’ll greet pleasantly your eyes ūüôā

Summer is a time where we can focus on the small wonders and that’s the result.
Have a lovely weekend!

Coccinelle (Ladybug)
——————-

Oh! Beautiful minuscule
Coccinelle. You climb the
Himalayan finger, drink
From the nectar, travel
Far and beyond the stone
World, cross the colored
Deserts of tablecloths,
Read my books, risk your
Life zigzagging your way
Through treacherous petals,
Knock on my window begging
For entry…

In the space of an afternoon
You were busier and more
Adventurous than any astute
And canny explorer.

Magnolia…

You reach toward the skies
Delicate as a water lily
Ephemeral blossom
I catch your petals
Falling unto my open palm
Treasure your scent
And this magical season

Perfect imperfect flower
Radiant in uniqueness
Glowing in strength
You are more beautiful
Than all the rows
Of fluffy petals
For you stand out
And catch the eye
Of the passerby.

To the mothers of the world 1989 ( English Poem with its French original text too )


©copyright2013owpp

©copyright2013owpp

This poem from 1989 differs by one word only. Instead of ” example of courage ” I changed it to ” model of courage. ”
As you can see, the sketch is brand new, made among a collection of three others, on the newborn-mother Theme.
This poem is dedicated to the beauty in all mothers, especially those that surround me and teach me lessons of
courage, dedication and selflessness on a daily basis.

Thank you!
