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!

Very simple and ellegant. Words in my ears have beautiful sound. Almost like innocence there is somewhere.

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.

Glad I could :)
I always believed that poetry and nature go hand in hand and this magnificent poem is a perfect example of that. I believe, too, that an artist could create this lovely image from your words alone. Simply breathtaking, Kelly.
