Carol Moore's Mountain Moments for June 27, 2008

Photos by Carol Moore
Mountain Moments

As the sun was setting
daylilies were closing
vivid orange flowers
petals slowly moving
inward
capsizing upon themselves
chilled by night air
they hang
limp and tired
as the sun rises
new lilies opening
catching the sun
vibrant
alive
enticing butterflies
encouraging bees
vital life force
an orange daylily



Last year as part of an art project, I took photographs of the lilies every thirty minutes from closed to fully open.
To see a flower, you really have to look at the flower.
They are incredibly amazing.
May you take the time to ponder nature today.
