Reflecting every photon of light,
Shining clean and pristine
From dawn until touched
Only by twilight and moonlight.
White on green
Upon verdant newness
Of leaves and grass.
Brightest of flowers
Blooming in the forest:
Dogwood, blackberry, Magnolia,
Mountain laurel, bloodroot
Trillium, Tiarella, turtlehead
Wild rose on thorny stem.
Call me out of doors
On warm fragrant evenings
To sit with the moths,
Watching for lightening bugs
Illuminating the night;

What is Popping Up?
Beautiful, WG. We have a lot of white blooming here, too. 🙂
Thank you, Robin. I hope your retreat week has you feeling rested, energized, inspired, and ready to move forward on the journey 😉 I’m looking forward to seeing your posts now that the garden is really coming to life! Hugs, WG
I’m happy that someone else also observed white. I love the contrast it adds to all landscapes and gardens.
Contrast and cool! A garden just looks cooler with white flowers on a hot day- to me at least. Thank you for visiting Forest Garden today. Best wishes for a great weekend, WG
Just lovely. You take the most stunning photographs! I love the poem too – especially the moonlight and firefly stanzas. Blessings! Sarah
Thank you so much Sarah. So nice to know you enjoy it. I hope it inspires you to go out and enjoy your own garden in the evening. I’ve been planting a lot of white and silver in the garden this spring because I love how they glow. Best wishes! I hope you have a good weekend and find some fun 😉 Blessings and hugs to you, WG
Beautiful photos and poem, Elizabeth! Your words are as sweet as a Spring breeze through the trees, your forest garden blooming with life, awakening our senses. Thank you for sharing, my friend 🙂 Hope you have a pleasant weekend!
Thank you, Tyler 😉 Cheers!
