Do Flowers Speak Louder Than Words?

in #photography2 years ago (edited)


Some days, flowers speak louder than words. The rest of the time, they hide behind the 'ole silence is golden thought.

A blanket of cool and quiet lay out there today. It fills my cup with sun and shine, sun and shine.



Happiness divided by two or more is multiplied.

This picture is dedicated to #MonochromeMonday by @old-guy-photos! Let's throw up some monochromes tonight. Perhaps a color splash for effect.



Even at a distance, you have a tendency to stand out in a crowd. Yes, you do. It's not always so black and white.



Words spoken from another time, no longer work for this day of mine
What was once, is no longer true, I am not yours, I don't belong to you
I never did, it's true
No more cornered in a tight little space, I am free to move about
To pace
If I wish. But, no, not my style
I would rather kiss sunshine, chase down the clouds
Eat rainbows for breakfast or other fancy things
Enjoying the freedom to wander about
Loving my life and all that it's got




There are mornings that just seem more than others. If we can take in those precious moments and embrace them, just a little bit longer. Oh, yes! What a wonderful world; what a beautiful life.

I see trees of green,
red roses too.
I see them bloom,
for me and you.
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue,
And clouds of white.
The bright blessed day,
The dark sacred night.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow,
So pretty in the sky.
Are also on the faces,
Of people going by,
I see friends shaking hands.
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying,
"I love you".

I hear babies cry,
I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more,
Than I'll ever know.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Yes, I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Oh yeah.

~ Louis Armstrong

And just like that, my post is done. Until next time! As always, I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by for a chat and a read!! Have a most fabulous day!

A flower. Thee must always be a flower to color my world. This flower is dedicated to #MondayRed #ColorChallenge by @Kalemandra. Because nobody does it better.



Let the sun shine in on your life
So the joy may touch your soul

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

Oh yeah that is a sweet one. Hmm perhaps I better get going on mine. I been out and about all day, spending money no less, simply horrible!

OMG see you are such a closet hillbilly, you subconsciously were stealing quoting old Merle (RIP, Sir)

Eatin' rainbow stew in a silver spoon
Underneath that sky of blue
We'll all be drinkin' that free bubble-ubb
And eatin' that rainbow stew
;)
Thanks for doing the tag. You know that makes the Old Man happy.

Noooo! Never! Not Merle!

I don't do hillbilly very well! I noticed you put yours out around the turn of the day... the next day, in fact. OMG, How are we supposed to drop a link to a non-existent post??? You know I am just looking for that big upvote, right?

Well, you know what they say, right? You cannot take it with you, so you might as well have a great time with it! :)

It's always a pleasure doing the tag.

such gorgeous flowers, I really love those color splash shots they really stand out

Thanks for being an active member and guide of SteemUSa !tip

Thank you so much! It's funny because I used to do a a lot of Color Splash and then for some reason I got away from it and very rarely use it but daisies are one of those things that I really love to use it. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and be a few words and I hope that you have a most amazing day.

Now that I think about it I have not done a color splash edit for a while but your right it was perfect fir those daisies
Always my pleasure to visit and you to have an amazing day

@dswigle,

Great photos, poignant sentiment ... and I LOVE that song. Listening to it as I type.

Quill

Darn it, do you have to be so sweet!? I keep on waiting for the other shoe to fall and there is none.

I really do love that song. Old Louis really Charmed me on that one. I especially like looking at his facial features when he's singing this because he is so emotionally charged with the feeling. As always, I want to thank you for stopping by and leaving kind and generous comments. You never cease to amaze me.

Stunning floral images with superb vibrancy and detail @dswigle What better way to 'Colour our World?' (U & R )

Thank you, my lovely friend! Tis the season for beautiful flowers and they have not disappointed this year. I think that we have had Better Blooms this year than we have in a long time. Oh yes, flowers really do Color My World! Thank you so much for stopping by and maybe you're always kind comments.

Always appreciated.

!tip

Many thanks for the kind tip and lovely comments Denise. I'm sure flowers are appreciated even more for people who live in countries that experience long, cold winters.

Having said that, they have a lot of drawing power in Queensland too and I love the changing vistas in the gardens at different seasons of the year.

Isn't it true? There's just something redeeming about flowers and I don't care what Time of the Season it seems to be. Although, I will say that if somebody gave me a beautiful bouquet in the winter, perhaps it would mean a little bit more because the flowers are not as abundant at that time of year, but I swear to you, if I got them anytime I would be a happy person. I too love the changing Vistas from season to season. Have a most enjoyable weekend!

A beautiful poem and that words come from the inspiration from the flower, thus a flower can tell us more than words.
