leaves wings and other such things

calla lily

we need mystery

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
― W.B. Yeats

what would it mean to see

calla lily stems






something for the first time

captivated by something unfamiliar 
to wonder & imagine.

to embrace mystery

― Marcus Aurelius

flowering calla lily birds

if calla lilies imagine flying as proposed in flight of the calla lilies
perhaps then
the birds may imagine being clustered among green leaves, surrounded by the fragrance of blossoms,
grass, & bark, even tickled by pollinating bees.

2 birds imagining what it would be like to be calla lilies

they would also imagine curling from a long graceful stem to create a sculptural rippled goblet.
they would even forget that some think calla lillies are undesirable weeds.
these birds know better.
