a poem-essay to share...

In the vastness of Nature's bounty
Nothing compares to the wonders
That flowers give to all our gardens
As real true-to-life stars of the day

More than just colors for our eyes
Sparkling Joy in bloom to shine
And flourishing light that we grow
To learn that Love is truly precious

As equally beautiful in greatness
In simplicity more than appearance
Rising to teach us some kindness
The beauty in sharing our feelings

Their movement is towards the Sun
Refined in good deeds of Holy Virtues
Reformed to live Life through the Heart
The Grace as to see beyond the eyes

The liberty from merely for decoration
But freedom to be honored as caring
And humility as the source of Dignity
Living in the Truth that brings Peace

Alive in Wisdom to defend the needy
The tasteful richness of inspirations
Dignified in protecting what is True
The meekness and gentleness within

Mother's day comin' [deleted] 11 years ago
Help! Where have I seen this picture before?

Hey I came across this lovely picture a few days ago
somewhere on the Internet. Is it Deja Vu or coincidence
but I could swear I saw this picture somewhere else before
but I can't for the life of me recall when/where.

Can anyone help me out? Is this a 'stock' image/photo,
posted on a greeting card, on flickr, google images or what?

See the thing about images is that there is no
search engine that allows a photo similarity search.
At least not within the broad domain/context of cataloging
the "DNA" of every image on the internet.
While we can instantly search for keywords to find
plagiarism on the internet using Google, or to find
more relevant sites, etc, we can't
search for "duplicates" of photos or photos that are
extremely similar in form or theme.

So has anyone seen this image anywhere before?
Any help would be great!

Well, in my humble opinion, flowers are the best subject to photograph. Although much derided by the 'cognoscenti', they can form the most beautiful and transcendent of images. Easy for anyone to take; almost impossible to master. I will never master the subject, I know, but I truly enjoy trying. Thank you for the topic and the poem, job_earth.
