TRIUMPH OF SPIRIT IN LOVE, NATURE & ART

The Intimate Intruder

RSCN2739

Je suis tres intime

avec les fleurs

I am very intimate

with the flowers

and fear I am intruding

into their secret

world of silent sensuality

visited by bees and butterflies

and other tiny creatures

seduced by their siren song

of quiet sexuality

seductive to all

who pause to peek

inside their blooms

    • You know I had a flower photo show a few years ago with pictures such as the ones on the post and so many people told me they looked at flowers this way, too. Thanks for looking and reading. Warmly, Ellen

      • Ellen, I think flowers have different personalities as I wrote in a former blog. I’m always impressed by their beauty and divinity. Have a nice week-end, greetings Mitza

    • Hadn’t thought of her but of course. You know I think I got this right but I remember reading that she said she didn’t particularly like flowers but painted so many of them because they made good models and were readily available to sit.

    Fascinating, bees and butterflies, etc. go to flowers for food, however, by doing so they pollinate and so it is a form of sexuality but not an intended one by the one’s wanting food.

    • True. But flowers seem to have their sexuality, intentional or not, on display.

    • Thank you so very much for your comment and for stopping by my blog. Wishing you warm greetings and inspirations, too, from the U.S. I should be fluent in French, learned in grammar school but alas, am not. All confused with Italian and Spanish.
