Design by nature

Design by nature

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

I caught a perfect raindrop, sitting upon the petal of a succulent.


Design by nature

 

 

a dulcet rain

begins to fall

 

an orb

of absolute precision

is meticulously cupped within

the concave petal of

a succulent

 

unequivocally designed

by nature.

This was pure joy for me, Cory - in so many ways! Thank you!
Your photograph - wrapped in expressive language, is exquisite. In another person's hands, it might have become excessive. Your less is definitely more, Kelly. Beautiful!

I love your analogy. Thank you so much!
I like this - Nature showing how it knows about keeping boundaries but still sharing the same space and your eloquent pen to gild the lily.
Nice package Kelly.

I like how this piece puts a special moment in slow motion, with the little raindrop taking its time to drop perfectly on the petal of a flower. Really great imagery and very mesmerizing for such a short piece. I also enjoyed the vocabulary as well as the image that went with the poem. Thank you for sharing.
