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.

They are the most beautiful of all plants- I carried many different types around with me in South Africa when I moved house many a time- breeding with them for eleven years- it’s amazing to see how they survive on little and still portrait such beauty through simplicity- wonderful 🌹

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.
