Door Roses

 

 


 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
                                       
 
 
 
Quieter, greater powers
Than photons sustaining 
Flowers emitting oxygen--
Quantum machineries in
Carbon lives--me, you, O2
Contained in time forward
And back as wind  blew
Balloons into our yard.

  1. Well written. We are O2 consumers and factories.

    1. Most kind, dear Susan. Yes, we do efficiently combine O2 with carbon as plants separate them again --a friendly exchange. Good thing too!

    1. Dear Mike, succinctly phrased. I'm amazed and encouraged that I'll go on iterating carbon long beyond this me.

  4. Those roses are perfect for such a whimsical door. And the way the wind has been blowing here recently those balloons could have come from us!

    1. Dear Bruce, When I gardened in the Greenhaven-Pocket area, I found a balloon on a lawn. It was filled with spent helium. An attached string carried a postcard "If you find this, let me know --Sarah...,...School, Mrs....'s third grade class."
      Of course I wrote where (and when) I found the card, 25 miles from where she let it loose and mailed it on the way home.
      I'm pretty hopeful you'd attach a card (with postage) like Sarah did, but balloons post-pictured had no return address. What the heck, when wind returns, let's try it!

  8. I'm fascinated by that Door, is that an Elephant Hinge? The Roses, well, who doesn't Love a Rose and it's heady Aroma.

    1. Dear Dawn, It's not a hinge, but a stabilizer. When we bought this crumbling farmhouse 40 years ago, we bought a walnut door to face south. Of course the combination of wet then frozen then 100+ degree weather did its mischief to the door. Happily, at the time one campus I gardened was discarding an aluminum parking lot sign directing traffic (new row for staff cars). I was reminded of an old Woody Guthrie song --studied in my '60s guitar days-- "Sign said 'NO TRESPASSING', other side said nothing. That side was made for you and me." So I used that free blank side to cut out elephants and fishes to secure the joints of that poor door. It has survived.
