The wild grasses on the sides 
of the coastal track

are autumn brown although it's spring
I bent down to look closely

at the tawny grass 

and spotted a splash of yellow
down the hillside

a clump of everlasting daisies

and right on the cliff edge

the daisy seeds set to be carried 
by the coastal breeze
to begin a new life



I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me
That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly
and my blood is part of the sea
There is not any part of me that is alone 
and absolute except my mind
and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself
it is only the glitter of the sun on the surfaces of the water



  1. Beautiful images accompanied by meaningful words from D.H.L. Thank you Delwyn.

  2. The shot of the seed head with the sea behind is wonderful, Delwyn. Your blooming just begins there as mine is finished.

  3. the brigh yellowin a field of brown adds a touch of joy and delight.

  4. I really do love the 4th photo, with the sea in the background - it is so peaceful!

    Loved the earlier posts, too, with the bearded dragons and frill necked lizards, and other inhabitants of your walking places!

  5. The everlasting daisies appear to have very strong upright stems....perfect for those sea breezes. I only have the white ox-eye daisies growing wild in the yard here.

  6. Wanda
    the ox eye daisy is a lovely one. This one is the paper daisy...

  7. I can see signs of spring. Daisies are so beautiful in any color. Loved the poem.

  8. I like the photo of the daisy seeds on the cliff. While everything is going to be prepared for the onslaught of the winter in my part of the world, new life starts germinating in your part. Thank you for the introduction of the poem by D.H.Lawrence. I love it. Have happy days ahead, Delwyn.
