Dec 05 2013 Ode to Nelson Mandela

nelson mandelaOde to Nelson Mandela
I cannot linger
When fair treatment falters
It’s warm embrace
Lost
I shiver in my oneness.

I cannot dwell on
Who defines greatness
But bask in the memory
Mindful
That I have lived in it’s time.

Dropping in on pink muhly

Wonderfully pink

Portraits of Wildflowers

Muhlenbergia capillaris, a pretty grass known as pink muhly and gulf muhly, is native in parts of Arkansas as well as Texas (and various other states). I found this one on the grounds of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, on November 9. Some brown sprigs from a bald cypress treeTaxodium distichum, had fallen into the feathery grass and remained caught there.
