PERSIAN BUTTERCUP AND ALL ITS LAYERS







Can you feel the newness of season? It's not just the weather; there is something in your nature which is so positive and powerful in these first days of Spring. Here, I am sitting looking at this beautiful flower and thinking about the coming days. About changes, developments and all the big, or simple days of my future that expect me to greet them in life. I am thinking about this moment that passed just right now and about this year of being twenty-six which will never ever reoccur for me. This strange feeling of growing up, this unknown touch of time on my face, in my eyes and in my heart... 
All these thoughts on a beautiful rainy day, which nature is so gracious and so generous, make me feel deeply in love with my life. So deeply that I can't let it pass, not the tiniest instant of it, without my consideration! 

Wish everyone a moment, a rare moment, to sit and to suddenly realize how beautiful they are. xo

What a beautiful flower. I've never seen one like it before ^_^ and your photos of it are lovely.

You're right about spring. It's reminding me how precious every moment of life really is (:

Lovely post.

Bless you for your deep thoughts at your young age. I don't believe I dwelt on these wonders until much later in life.

Even now, as 62, I often fail to cherish each moment and to make the most of it. I seem to rush from one thing to another, if not physically, in my mind.

Thank you for sharing the beauty of the flower and your thankfulness for the rain that's falling. Indeed, there is something beautiful in every moment if we train ourselves to open our eyes and hearts to it.

Have a beautiful Saturday, my dear friend who dwells in a country far, far from mine but who touches me as if she were sitting right beside me.

The subtlety of the flower,the way you took the pictures and wrote your post are very poetic.
But then again, I do believe literature, poetry and arts are strongly rooted in the lives of Iranians.No? I remember someone telling me that Iranian poetry is one of a kind.
And you have an artists heart.
