The ONE on the earth



Sometimes, I feel that Nature talks to me.
Of course there cannot be such a thing.

It is always silent.




The gentle breeze of the spring...
Clouds and the flower are blown away by it.

The King of the flower in the Orient,
Peony (牡丹).
Male of animals 牡 (bo)   +  Vermilion 丹 (tan)




The people of the ancient times might have watched his figure.
And they might have heard his voice...

This kanji character is good for the King. It is Graceful.







散りてのち  おもかげに立つ  牡丹かな
 与謝 蕪村  (1716-1783)

After you left...  as it used to look  so peony
 
Yosa Buson (1716-1783)

  8. Nature does talk to us. Not in words, not in gestures but in the emotions it evoques, thus making us feel as a part of it.Something so important and real and yet so easily forgotten...Your pictures, though, help us remember.

  16. Bonjour Ruma,

    j'ai planté cette fleur dans mon jardin depuis plusieurs années, mais je n'ai que des feuilles;
    La fleur impériale doit trouver mon jardin trop "sec"!

  20. La pivoine est une des plus belles fleurs de la terre. Dommage qu'elle ne pousse pas facilement dans tous les jardins. J'habite dans une région calcaire et il est très difficile de les cultiver ici. Il nous reste à les admirer en photo.
    Ta photo est excellente, Bravo

  25. Stunning images and your thoughts that accompany them! I believe that nature talks to us, send us small secrets whispered on the rustle of petals and blossoms. Come visit me on my blog and see my garden images I just posted -- I think you will enjoy them?

  26. In your first image, the rose it's so expouse to life... by the way, in every Romanian house it is love and feel a Japoneez Rose, like this on (sorry for my English :( ...)

  29. Greetings,

    I humble disagree with you that nature cannot speak to us, for I know Mother Earth and her children do. It certainly is not in words but its language is a combination of sound, texture, colour and movement. In the same way a speechless individual communicates with us through sign language and touch.

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
    Egmont

  30. Wonderful and fabulous.
    They speak to us about the Creator.
    Love these.
    Happy weekend.

  31. Beautiful images.

    Mother Nature is never silent, she speaks to us every day that we take time to listen. The breeze rustling gently through the trees, the soft sounds of falling rain, a cricket chirps, and a bird sings. From the whisper of a falling leaf to the roar of a thunderstorm her sweet voice is always there. She is mentor and muse.

  33. Me gustó la idea de confrontar la flor con el paisaje.

    Le has dado a la flor la mayor importancia, por lo que entiendo que la belleza de ésta está por encima del paisaje en general.

    Lo bello es poético y por eso tu idea ha sido muy buena.

    Un abrazo.

  34. The peony is such a beautiful flower...and I just recently read a lovely book by Lisa See called "Peony in Love" - she writes about Chinese women and I so enjoy all her novels.

    Your photographs, as always, delight my soul, Ruma!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love these photos of the tree peony and the clouds. They touch a quiet place in me. Nature does speak to us silently doesn't she. Very special vision Ruma. Thank you for sharing!

  42. *thumbsup*

    nature´s soul is whispering,
    it might sound like silence for the ears
    but for the heart it might sound
    like the most delicate and gentle song ever
