Dahlia Love

I love Dahlia, their flowers and the smell of their foliage.  I only have one variety, a “spider” dahlia, in my garden, but it is so lovely that I fall in love with it each year, and of course I take lots of photos.

However, I also like to edit my photos a little bit, and one of my favourite edits is simply to invert the photo, and guess what?  My dahlia looks totally awesome inverted, like some tentacled maw about to swallow you up.  What do you think?

View of a hole

I had a niggly little thought
but it was full of holes
and so I didn’t say it, but left it in my head
and that’s as good as any place
to store it I suppose.

I had a little leaf
and it was full of holes
and yet they made it beautiful, an elegant design
so I found a way to keep it safe
and let it’s whole self show.
