Wordless Wednesday – Azalea ‘thinking of home’ bush

pink azalea flowers

Electric pink azalea ‘Thinking of home bush’ 20 April 2017

A falcon hovers at the edge of the sky.Two gulls drift slowly up the river.Vulnerable while they ride the wind,they coast and glide with ease.Dew is heavy on the grass below,the spider’s web is ready.Heaven’s ways include the human:among a thousand sorrows, I stand alone.
Du Fu – Influential Chinese Poet (712-770) – Also he wrote often about azaleas
