Nature Teacher: Divide and Fall

Giant bright pink rhododendron shrub reflected in the pond



rhododendron blossoms


then fall

to darkened waters

in the abstruse storm.

Pink rhododendron petals windswept in the pond



trying to survive

nestle together

in the refuge of accord.

  2. Wow, absolutely beautiful message and photos! Indeed, when the storm winds blow, we must be rooted in something much greater than us. Together, we share each others burdens and learn invaluable lessons. Love truly is our greatest gift. We need much more of it in this ol’ world today! Sending my love and well wishes across the miles to you and yours.

  3. Yes, there is unity in numbers but may I always be unafraid to speak out even as one.

    Oddly, my rhododendron usually loses its petals to a great storm. This year, they are just spent. Probably from exhaustion! 🙂 Love and Hugs across the miles to you too.❤


  4. Beautiful poem and images WG…. Much like humanity at the moment..
    We had a huge thunderstorm this afternoon and deluge.. I have a Rhodi similar to this along with foxgloves it dashed the petals to the ground…
    May we all learn that strength comes from Unity… ❤
    Love and Hugs your way ❤ 🙏
