'a little bit of Australia'

my sister went outside to collect some 'special things', & then later appeared with

a flower arrangement she called "a little bit of Australia" :)

i am ever amazed at the underside of magnolia leaves,{& the flowers star-like shape}

they are almond coloured & velvety to touch

a work of art

There is another sky,
Ever serene and fair,
And there is another sunshine,
Though it be darkness here;
Never mind faded forests, Austin,
Never mind silent fields -
Here is a little forest,
Whose leaf is ever green;
Here is a brighter garden,
Where not a frost has been;
In its unfading flowers
I hear the bright bee hum:
Prithee, my brother,
Into my garden come!
~ Emily Dickinson ~

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand--
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep--while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
~ Edgar Allan Poe ~
