A Patience Flower..


An abject lesson in patience is the flower outside our doorway

planted when the spring was young watered,

tended, nurtured through the spring, the summer,

into the cooling of fall bursting into a single bloomin

the middle of October just days before frost

will come into our world

Watching over this flower,

waiting for its blooming

wondering what fruit

it will bear all summer long

Beautiful - love the words and the shot. Looks like you are doing well with the textures. I usually get my textures just by searching on Flickr. There are a bunch of nice free ones that are creative commons. :)

I love the layers used with this photo. Nice job!

Your recent stuff is looking really great.

Thanks very much! The textures are fun to play with and add another whole dimension to photo's I think.
