Through the Cracks



You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of it's own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.

What comes to mind is the question of why is it always the weeds that have the strength to show up in the most unexpected places? :(

Though the dandelion's yellow is so wonderful ~ I will still be thankful for it's beauty! :)

Kerri, I love the shape of the flower, its shadow, and its verve! But what what resonated the most with me was how the snippet of Robert Louis Stevenson's poem sprang into your mind. "I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me, and what can be the use of him is more than I can see..." Stevenson identified childhood's universal experiences and expressed them in beautiful language. I wish more parents shared him today - there are several good illustrated books of his children's poems out there. I love them today as much I did back when. Pictures and poetry - they go together! Keep shooting!

Isn't it amazing where things grow? I once saw a 3 ft. maple tree growing on an old railroad trestle that crossed a creek in Pennsylvania. The seed sprouted in a crack in one of the timbers and was at least 60 feet from either bank of the creek.

Which came first, the weed or the crack?

Sunshine and happiness come to mind for me.
I've never thought of dandelions as weeds but pretty flowers.
Love the picture!

Hi Kerri,
This is a very nice picture, just showing up that if we were to disappear, nature will quickly takes its right again!

reminds me of the old expression, "bloom where you are planted" ...

The thought that comes to my mind is--Why are dandelions considered weeds?

I thought of 'persistence'. We all need some of that to keep going in a sometimes difficult world. Beautiful is also true.
Blessings,Ruth

Very pretty Kerri.

Great shot, lie the shadow too.

The most simple we take for granted, but they are miracles every day that we have become so used to, that we have become oblivious to them:)

Hope really does spring eternal! I have to admit I'm really enjoying seeing the dandelions.

That's a cool photo. I posted a picture of a dandelion awhile back and someone told me that dandelions are "love flowers" because they're the first flowers that children pick for their parents. It gave me a whole new perspective on dandelions.

Tenacious. Determined.
Wonderful picture!

Rick said...

We both had dandelions on our minds (and in our lens) today - yours is lovely.

Stacey Dawn said...

Determination!

That's what comes to mind... beautiful shot and I love its shadow!

Barb said...

I think of tenacity!

Mimi said...

Peek-a-boo! That's what comes to my mind.
That flower has attitude and I like it!

Isn't it just so neat to see things grow in such unexpected places? :c)
