The Wild Morning Glory unfolded herself in the morning, waiting for the sun and wind to iron out her creases.

Fizzle, fazzle, dizzle, dazzle, pop, pop, pop! Can you see how she's pretending to be a shooting star?

Yesterday, this Hurricane Lily burst forth in the parking lot island at work.
Are these amazing flowers called Hurricane Lilies because they bloom during hurricane season, or because a hurricane carried in the seeds from some rare, tropical place, or because they look like hurricanes, or, better yet, all three? I took this photo at 1/3000 to prevent the Sun from blowing out the detail on the flower. Thoughts?

Miss Lacy Zinnia spread her wings and lifted her head high above the garden. She wanted desperately to fly like the butterfly and bee, but alas. That darned stem attached to her body held tight and refused to let her go. Thus, she lived, and bore many children over the longest time.

Tigerlily licked her chops, then snuggled up to Mama Rosa. "Thank you, Mama Rosa, for providing such a delicious dinner."
"You did half the work, little dear," purred Mama Rosa. "Though I think that part was accidental. However, all is now well."
"Except for mean Old Gil," murmured Tigerlily. "Don't worry about him, " said Mama Rosa. "The Universe will remake him, as it will me, and you, one day." Tigerlily turned her brilliant eyes to the sky and gazed at the millions of light sparkles until her eyelids began to droop.
"Good night, Mama Rosa," she whispered.
"I love you," said her Mama.

The water stilled, smooth as glass, reflecting perfectly the trees and birds on the northern bank; the clouds. The woodland creatures quieted in that way only woodland creatures can be quiet. Tigerlily stared at the water as her muscles tightened. She listened to her heartbeat, her breath, then held her breath, listening harder. Her nose twitched. Her whiskers straightened. Her fur lifted ever so slightly.

Good Morning, Happy America, and long live the original Revolution! No matter how muddled our landscape looks at any moment in time, we will always be the land of the free, home of the brave, for ALL the people, by ALL the people. Every one of us on Earth is born with the Natural Right to happiness, prosperity, and peace, free from the dominion of others. We are still freedom-fighting for our "more perfect union," no question, but as our founders and defenders knew, to quote the late, great MLK, "the arc of the moral Universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

Soon enough, the water calmed. Splashes became ripples, which soon became as perfectly concentric as rings around the moon. Mama Rosa's tail was no longer in Tigerlily's sight, though the birds sweeping and swooping above the lake saw everything. The birds quieted, as did all the cicadas and crickets and every other thing that makes racket. Tigerlily felt as if a great breath was taken and held by all the life in the woods.
