...while waiting for the mist to clear a little I spotted this angelic fern holding some spiders webs in the morning light.
Taken this Sunday morning.
Here is the fern’s frond, unfurling a gesture,
Like a conductor whose music will now be pause
And the one note of silence
To which the whole earth dances gravely –
A dancer, leftover, among crumbs and remains
Of God’s drunken supper,
Dancing to start things up again.
And they do start up – to the one note of silence.
The mouse’s ear unfurls its trust.
The spider takes up her bequest.
And the retina
Reins the Creation with a bridle of water.
How many went under? Everything up to this point went under.
Now they start up again
Dancing gravely, like the plume
Of a warrior returning, under the low hills.
Many Thanks for you UA Nathan and more thanks for the poem too.
very misty here today still not clear yet Dougie, the webs look good in that available light alongside the ferns
Beautiful light on the fern - just like golden fingers reaching out. Moira
brilliant colour and light dougie belting detail a cracker nice one
Fascinating ferns, Dougie. All held in place by those gosssamer threads, like the wires of a suspension structure..
Simply lovely - backlit ferns, can't beat them!
A wonderful crop, broad, generous and expansive, spreading its wings.
How lovely. The light is wonderful.......Sandy
I now understand your message Dougie - how funny we were both on the same track at the same time, although a few hundred miles apart! The backlit ferns look beautiful in the morning light with the tiny webs seeming to hold them in place.
well taken shot with lovely light and excellent detail Dougie.
The fern looks like it's having a morning wake up stretch ! Lovely image ! I had to join the RHS to get members day tickets for the Chelsea flower show so making the most of my gardens membership! Just back from the Dundee University Botanic gardens !
Bill thanks for your UA always a great pleasure to get one from a friend.
It was a magical find in the woods.
Autumnal splendour has finally arrived Dougie, congratulations on the awards.
I think this explains your love for autumn colours. Lovely,
