Spring Preview and Poems

Please enjoy my floral photography and musings. I hope it brings a bright spot to your day! All but one photo was captured right here in my Michigan, USA garden. The tulip was taken from my wonderful sister's patio garden!

My True Blue Lover

April Crocus
April Crocus


You tried your best everyday of your life

You endeavored to do what was right

You dug deep to find inner strength

You sailed through many of life's storms

You captured and held on to your dignity

Your love was the truest of blue

I am proud and so very blessed having known you


Rocks, Petals and Pollen

Come to me

my petals of pollen

and let me rock your world

with my warm earth

Spring Hyacinths

Hyacinth, hyacinth

Let me take pleasure in your sweet scent

Life is worth living with your presence

Springtime Spark

Forsythia,

just when I thought there was no end

to winter's bare branches

you took my breathe away!

Aaaah, Green

When out of the dark arose the first leaves

Soon, there will be a luxurious landscape of gregarious green

It will feed the forest animals

Produce flowers for the bees

Spring life back into our steps

And the sacred cycle will continue through eternity


Thrill of the Daffodil

Is it true what they spill

That a flower has the will

To grapple nature's kill

Simply for the thrill

To cure our winter ill

The only possible fill

Would be the daffodil

Flaming Heart

Right from the start

Your fire lit my heart

In short time we vowed till death do us part


For now, your absence burns

And everyday I yearn

Wishing you could someday return


Through all this pain

Our love has gained

The wisdom that our love is an eternal flame


I hope you see the heart in the center petal, it inspired me to muse the memory of my late husband, Joseph... 6/17/47-11/13/09!

Thank you Will, I really appreciate it and I'm glad you stopped by today cause it made me realize I didn't press the "follow Will" button way back when. It's not the first time I meant to do that and somehow didn't! Good to see you, I'll have to catch up! Take care and I hope you have a bright Spring day!

Kathi, Amazing how you can capture the beauty of a flower. I sensed a longing for your loss in your poetry, that feeling creeps up when we least expect it. Seeing green is wonderful. I have flowers starting to bloom. Thank you my friend.

Your intricate eye for detail is alive and kicking. Very vibrant photos here, each teeming with it's own personality. I really enjoy the alternating pictures and verse, especially this one:

When out of the dark arose the first leaves

Soon, there will be a luxurious landscape of gregarious green

It will feed the forest animals

Produce flowers for the bees

Spring life back into our steps

And the sacred cycle will continue through eternity"

That has a very timeless feel, like it could have been written 2 thousand years ago. Well done.

Fossillady...

A walk through a garden of

flaming hearts afire

Or of the green of spring

we'll never tire

And a pathway that leads to

the rainbows ends

In a garden of eden

a garden of fiends

I love your phography.

and maybe the reason why quiet Doug never drops by - he's intimidated - lol - and let me not forget about your other hidden talent as a truly wonderful writer and poet too - and I know you're the hottest woman alive in Michigan these days - gotta drive down there one of these days and take you out for dinner .....

Hi Rose, thank you for the great compliment! Keep thinking Spring

Hi Epi, you always put a smile on my face and inspire me to keep going! You're the best! I have to give you credit for helping me with a better following! Once you started introducing me to other hubbers it just took off from their! Please say hello to Doug for me and the kitties too. My kitty came home with some bumps and bruises last night, something either got a hold of him or he was in a cat fight, he's okay though. Bless you sweet friend

H F-Lady, I started to read the many accolades on here but i gave up about half-way through, there are so many! It's great to see that everybody here appreciates you :-)

I got to say... I like all of these short poems but one of them stands out above the others for me --- "the thrill of the daffodil" is just tops... killer title with great rhythm, pace and energy. Mad, bad and dangerous to know --- a little bit like yourself, maybe :-) :-) More of these please!


Fossillady profile image

Fossillady 5 years ago from Saugatuck Michigan Author

Hi Damian, good to see you! I appreciate your kind and generous comment! The daffodil poem flowed right out from my fingers, it was almost as if something angelic took over. Does that ever happen to you? Take care my friend

..still loving your hubs ...naturally and ...still sending everyone your way ....naturally - and I put my speedo on for the first time yesterday on a day here that almost looked like summer and some older lady (well at least 3 decades older than me) said that I looked 'not bad for an old guy' - lol

lol... I put on my bikini for my garage sale and scared everybody away...tee hee! It really was a beautiful day until the rain returned AGAIN! I hope everything is okay with you! It wasn't much of a Spring and Summer is right around the corner for you to enjoy Lake Erie. I haven't swam in Lake Michigan in years and I even work at the beach in the summer. I'll have to do something about that this year! Good to see you dearest Colin!

..I went all the way back to the top Kathi - and yes these are the best flowers of all time because you captured them ...... on film .. for all to see - and yes I put my feet in Lake Erie today for the first time this year - tomorrow I will go up to my knees and perhaps if it gets warmer - up to my waist ..... it's been a tough go this year for some reason - are we getting older or is winter just getting longer - currently listening to Springsteen's classic lp Born to Run with some red wine - of course!

Hi Nell, we've had day after day of unusual rain with a few breaks in between. If I want to enjoy Spring, I have to capture it with the camera whenever I can. If only we could share some of our rain with you over there in England where I here it's been dry! Thanks for stopping by dear friend!

Hi Daydreamer, Thank you so much for the kind compliment! I hope you are enjoying your Spring! :o)

Kathi - These photos are exquisite! You bring each beautiful flower to life with your camera. I felt as those I could smell the scent right here in my room. And your poetry "dresses" each photo, with just the right thoughts. You have to possess a deep inner beauty to capture the heart and soul of nature as you do. Thank you.

.....Hi Kathi - it's now Sunday morning at 1:07am on this June of 5th ....and I am just sending a friendly shout out to my favorite photographer at the Hub and a lady whom I admire so very much and has been a big part of my life here ...... just mellowing out with some fine music and a few beers .... so nice to see you at my hub tonight - I saw Led Zepplin live back in 1974 at Toronto Maple Leaf Gardens and yes they dedicated Stairway to Heaven to you .....and heaven for me is having you as a friend and an esteemed colleague at the Hub - more consistent summer weather here by Lake Erie and even last week I had my first baptism in the lake on a very hot day and went swimming up to my neck - lol - for about 20 minutes .....


Fossillady profile image

Fossillady 5 years ago from Saugatuck Michigan Author

Wow, do you know what the water temp was? Lake Michgigan has been around 60 degrees give or take a few!

I would die to see the Zeplin in concert. I still listen to them. Well you were just a young thing when you saw them in concert! I'm certain you must have some great memories of it!

I sent you an email a few days ago...did you get it? It sort of explained why I haven't been on the hub as much lately, just busy with new job and searching for another one. I have had a lot of hours these past two weeks, but coming up in a next couple of weeks my boss hardly gave me any cause she's just forgetful that way. Nice lady, but a little spacey!

It's so good to see you and I miss the regular contact! Be talking to you again soon!
