High summer railway flowers

“Who can by stillness, little by little

make what is troubled grow clear?

Who can by movement, little by little

make what is still grow quick?


To follow the Way

is not to need fulfillment.

Unfulfilled, one may live on

needing no renewal. ”

from Ursula K. Le Guin’s rendition of Lao Tzu –  Tao Te Ching.

Red railway poppies

To the garden of the road.

The faith of the poppie seed – to grow towards the new season’s sun from wherever it is.   To respond to the rain from where it is.  To grow.   The faith of the poppie seed –  keeping the company of others who grow – the grass, the nettle, the brave and the beautiful.  The little lilac flowers.  And the bees, bees for each red flower bursting through the paving.
