There For Today

(you might like to enlarge them)


Shadows grow
But they don't stay
Like the flowers
There here today..
Gone before
You look away

Days will pass
&
You'll look back
It's just the way..
So give them flowers
There for today-

Hi Regina, amazing monochrome photos. You are a fabulous photographer and I love your words. We need to be present and enjoy the moment. Wonderful words of wisdom.

Carver said...

I liked these photographs and words too. There is something about the first and second shots that I especially liked. The simplicity of the shots and how they seemed to tell a story was compelling.

Nice photos, is this a watering trough?

You've got beautiful photos here especially the flowers. I usually buy flowers for my mom whose passion is landscaping and gardening. I like the poem you wrote also. Been writing poems before but unfortunately wasn't able to find it where i have written it, as far as i remember it was on my old High School notes. But, anyways, thanks for giving time to visit my blog.

These are amazingly beautiful photos. I can sense a bit melancholy in them, but somehow i love a bit sad images. Very touching.

Dimple said...

I like the close up. These objects haven't been used in a while, nature is taking over...
Thanks for the visit!

So much beauty in black and white Regina, and words that speak volumes. Your header photo is also stunningly beautiful. Have a great week.

James said...

Hello again Regina. Regarding your Weekend Reflections question. You can link anytime Friday thrugh Sundy. It just depends on what you prefer or what is convenient for you. Personally I think in most memes the earlier you link the more visits you get.

Lovely photos.

Amin said...

The new header is very beautiful.I have not seen before so like flower.

Amin said...

These photos reminds me our country In Shemkir region, in Azerbaijan.

Kilauea Poetry said...

Amin, does it rain often? We have dryer places on the island where a lot of the vegetaion really thrives. The red blossoms from the Ohia tree (last post below) are from a much higher elevation (they are the Islands official flower too) like the area I photographed for this post. They do much better with cold and less rain, which may explain why some look similar to you.

Beautiful images and words!

elvira pajarola said...

ANTIQUE TIMES....Impressions of times left behind.......These magnificient photos seem portraits of older times...WONDERFUL, Regina....!!!!

About every 100 metres You can meet water taps in our village.The name of our village is Irmashli in Shemkir region.There are big hills in part of Shemkir ,and these places are not dry .
