Flora ’n’ Fauna

Flora_Fauna1

Splendiferous, copious forests
Mark territorial landscapes
Where impressive oaks and lofty pines
Show off their stout and woody shapes

Flora_Fauna2

Desert plants and wildflowers
Adapt to extreme heat and aridity
Fierce, wild, red-to-orange and white

The other day, Sharla again asked me if I would collaborate with her and another of her poems. Again, I felt very honored that she would choose me to add my photos!

Thank you again Sharla for this opportunity!

Only heaven could possibly spawn

Twilight2

Standing on the edge of silence
A sense of calm penetrates the soul
Hovering between darkness and light
Sheer magnificence to behold

Twilight3

Between sunset and dusk
Day’s last light seems to stand still
