“Flower Lover” by Geert Weggen


roses are red

violets are blue

my garden is dead

and I’m missing you


grand feasts for my eyes

memories of former glories

flowers, buds, and butterflies

alive with grand stories


with your spring arrival

come water, magic, and light

nature’s colors gone viral

I shall revel in delight


Speaking of delight, Dutch photographer Geert Weggen has a clear passion for red squirrels. He’s been photographing them for over 6 years, resulting in some of the most amazing photos I’ve seen. The squirrels express their play and delight in nature, just like many of us human critters. Here are 30 of his best shots featured on the BrightVibes website. The photo above is titled Flower Power and inspired my poetry. I often behave just like this squirrel, diving into flowers for a closer look and smell. Maybe I was a bee in a former life.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚
