Unfolding Being


Droplets of Love
Photograph by Trinitystar

jewels adorning my skin
droplets
holding reflections of life
I
hidden in darkness
within
the fragrant petals
pause
to open and unfold
expressing
the beauty of being
Dedicated to Master S

Quotes:

Edith Wharton

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

Doris Mortman

Until you make peace with who you are, you'll never be content with what you have.

Coco Chanel

How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.

William James

Each of us literally chooses, by his way of attending to things, what sort of universe he shall appear to himself to inhabit.

Thomas Merton

We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being. As a result, men are valued not for what they are but for what they do or what they have—for their usefulness.

Dear Trinitystar,
Have a few free minutes before heading out to a ballgame, so came here to say "hi"
So glad to be here and take in the beauty of your picture (you are a wonderful photographer!) and poem.

Hope all is great with you!
Life's very busy here, but I'm enjoying every minute.
It's so special having my son out of school, and we are spending lots of time together.
He'll be leaving for college in Aug.

Take care, and have a lovely weekend!

Hi Trinity,

Sorry I haven't been by, I spent a week in Cairns North Queensland Aust.
