"No vision and you perish;
No ideal, and you're lost;
Your heart must ever cherish
Some faith at any cost.
Some hope, some dream to cling to,
Some rainbow in the sky,
Some melody to cling to,
Some service that is high."

Love the light in it highlights the edge of the flower's soft petal.

I love the soft focus in this, Mary! I am not sure what sort of a flower it is, but that has nothing to do with it. I just love the photo!!
And the landscape in the previous post - it simply belongs on a wall somewhere!! Stunning!!

The poem is a great accompaniment to the photo. ;-)

Well, well, well....this is a very timely quote for me. I've been feeling very overwhelmed by the magnitude of my big D Dream lately, and well, you know what that can lead to. Thank you for sharing that. Beautiful photo.
