All that unblemished snow!! We got snow today :) There's something magical about water lilies, and I love Plath's Crossing the Water poem -

"Stars open among the lilies.
Are you not blinded by such expressionless sirens?
This is the silence of astounded souls."

oh no

i had forgotten this was only one week-series :-(

i love both of them, but the second one is amazing - such frailty - and with Plath's poem here (thank you Sorlil!), what more can i say: this is the silence of my astounded soul.

A treasure of contrasts on a winter solstice, the longest night of the year. Thank you.

I was reminded by my sister tonight of the transformative water lily in symbols in the Eastern cultures.

Coming from murky muddy pools, such pure beauty.

Roxana: Oh, but there will be other series ... aleady I am sensing dim plans looming just over the horizon....

Dianne: Yes, there is something archetypal about water lilies, and not only in the East ... beauty out of the mud and rotting debris, there is something basic to our souls....
