In the Feeling

InSpring: that feeling.

And how do I

express, convey, record, or transmute it?

Because it pervades, it’s the air, it’s

heavy lilac scent and a

rabbit disappearing

under a hedge, it is birdsong, breeze-on-cheek

and buttercups,

wild-seeded on the margins.

We feel it underneath the

blessing of leafed-out branches,

light

suffusing through the veins,

and neurons…

throughout.

I can try.

    • It can be a stretch to leave color behind at this time of year – but I’m going to process more photos from that day in color. I’m glad you liked these this way Louis.

    • I was thinking about how we try to record what we experience in a garden in Spring, but it’s so much more than the photos we usually take. I thought about different ways to convey the whole feeling – like shooting up and into the light, from underneath the Japanese maples, etc. Thank you for the compliment –

    • Ah, good. My favorite of the bunch, and a little different than the others.
      I’m in NY now, but with previous little time to spare – would have been good to meet. Next time!
