Ever since we joined Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Challenge, I look forward to Tuesdays. This week, the letter is V and the theme that I chose is Velvet to stand for the velvety feel of flower petals. These are photos taken by our featured photographer, Elena Yamamoto Flores.
I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
― Edna St. Vincent Millay “Afternoon on a Hill”
“I read somewhere once that souls were like flowers,’ said Priscilla.
‘Then your soul is a golden narcissus,’ said Anne, ‘and Diana’s is like a red, red rose. Jane’s is an apple blossom, pink and wholesome and sweet.’
‘And our own is a white violet, with purple streaks in its heart,’ finished Priscilla.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea
“Writing a book of poetry is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo.”
― Don Marquis
