Metamorphosis …


 

♥ The Rite of Spring ♥

Metamorphosis …

 

Nymphs Celebrating the Coming of Spring ...

Nymphs Celebrating the Coming of Spring …

 

April is the cruellest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain …T.S.Eliot

 

Nymphs

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis

 

Golden Wind of Life why don’t you Reach me ? I want to Breathe Spring  Sweet Fragrances  …

The Frosty Veil melted down and Flowers felt the Spring Warming Breeze …

 

When the frosty veil melted down ...

When the frosty veil
melted down …

 

Metamorphosis …

 

Thematic Depictions ...

Thematic Depictions …

 

NYMPHS, who from Ocean’s stream derive your birth,
Who dwell in liquid caverns of the earth

Nurses of Bacchus secret-coursing pow’r,
Who fruits sustain, and nourish ev’ry flow’r:
Earthly, rejoicing, who in meadows dwell,
And caves and dens, whose depths extend to hell:
Holy, oblique, who swiftly soar thro’ air,
Fountains and dews, and mazy streams your care:
Seen and unseen, who joy with wand’rings wide
And gentle course, thro’ flow’ry vales to glide; 10
With Pan exulting on the mountains height,
Loud-founding, mad, whom rocks and woods delight:
Nymphs od’rous, rob’d in white, whose streams exhale
The breeze refreshing, and the balmy gale …

~ Excerpt from the Orphic Hymn ~

 

 

♥ Happy Spring to You all my WP Friends ♥

  2. I enjoyed this post the montage caught my eye immediately.
    Taking me back in time to a poem my mother recited for me.
    “There are fairies in the bottom of my garden.” Rose Fyleman.
    Marvellous video of the ballet, great choreography, dancers and music,that was a superb choice, tying it all in to a feast of Spring.
    A feast served up on a plate to tempt a mans libido.
    A spring quote I like is “I want to do to you what spring does to the cherry tree.” Pablo Neruda._/\_

    • So glad Sue Dear that I am having you at my place and reading your rich comments!Spraying?Do you mean rain or chemtrails … ? Oh,my imagination runs wild again … Please explain 🙂 ❤ Thank you so much for everything !!!

      • I mean Chemtrails Doda. I even took a photo today on my phone.. we went out walking after lunch.. they had been in the air all morning..its heart-breaking.. Many do not Look UP to see what is happening.. I have been aware of this for years now.. But it is getting more and more overhead here in England.. and there is a dust that settles upon cars and plants.. Which makes me even sadder for we grow all our own food.. So we have to wash everything really well..
        There was a post on a friends blog I follow recently upon this very subject.. I will go find it for you if you like?

        • Yes,that’s what I suspected and thanks for confirming it.I have taken photos too,which some I Tweeted away on my Twitter site;indeed,they have been in the blue skies for years now,here in Greece and in the UK,we have seen a lot there too,and in Scotland and Germany,everywhere around the world.Everybody knows what it is,but do nothing to stop it …
          We buy Bio Food,fruit and vegetables like your fresh ones,but they are affected as you say above.Nothing and nobody can help,it reminds me of the Apocalypse or the Revelation of Saint John the Divine,where it said that some day we will have everything,but we won’t be able even to touch ….
          If you mean that site:

          I have watched it,it’s alarming as I have written in my short comment I left under this WP friend’s post 😦
