They Gather In Pools

(Macro Flower Saturday here)

Springtime is here
The air is balmy
Sitting here barefoot
It's cold inside

Still watching
Yellow blossoms
Falling through the trees

So I have no streams
To offer you
No not rivers
Or the deep blue sea-

Just a mere reflection
In the gathering pools..

Have a great weekend-

Your place is a spot of calm. I've been to The Islands twice. I love being reminded of my visits by stopping by. Usually I'm turned off by Unwanted Audio Onslaughts--the background offered while viewing a blog. But not here. Your floral photography is splendid.

I love your poem, and the rather mysterious pictures. The first pool looks rather tiny, yet I get a glimpse of clouds in it. Something enormous in something so small. The photos evoke a kind of hypnotic state in me, where I could just stare, kind of like a gazing ball. I knew there was a lot of rice there, but did not know you didn't have much bread. This makes me think of the King's Hawaiian bread they sell here. That is what it is called. It is soft bread and has a wonderful very sweet flavor unlike anything else. Is that truly Hawaiian, or something we just made up here in the states and gave the name to?
