What Part 2

nina flower landscape 2ss

what of the air  what of the earth
water and fire all giving birth
seed and decay constant return

blue into green  green into brown
reaching for heights tumbling down
growing to shine sparkle and burn

seasons repeat present and new
brown into green  green into blue
always the time celebrate mourn

A nove otto in response to Jane Dougherty’s challenge this week.  I divided it into 3 stanzas.


The collage was inspired by one the landscapes Nina posted in January.

    Gorgeous work! Love the division of the lines — and of course I think you know how I feel about collage (if not: I LOVE it!!!) 🙂
