Priceless


A simple bouquet of flowers,
plastic-wrapped, propped up in a grocery-store bin,
$5.00 for the dozen.


Like a shimmering mirage
their colours stopped me in my tracks.


After a long Winter
and an even longer wait for Spring
to truly begin,


I was beginning to feel as if I
was trapped in a colourless desert.


I had no idea how much I needed them.


As usual,
it took my camera,
and my all-seeing macro lens,



To reveal the magnitude
of their magic and beauty.


$5.00 a dozen,
it seems incredible...

Because what these flowers have to offer is


- Priceless!

  11. Very true Rosemary - the beauty and poetry of flowers is priceless and we have to value them fully while they're in bloom.

    But of course, we can't ignore the very hard labour that goes into cultivating flower farms - it would be great if there were much more fair-trade bouquets available in the supermarkets! In UK anyway
