My 100th Post Extravaganza

So here it is: my 100th post! Wow. I can’t even begin to imagine how long it would have taken me to get to this point if the point of this site was still just poetry.

I decided to make this post a poetry, image and blog post to combine all the features of this site and to say a great big huge thank you to everyone who’s ever read or viewed any post I’ve made. This includes my amazing friends who see the links on facebook, to the other brilliant bloggers including: Devon (great photos and blogs), Katie (stunning photos and information on how to get them), Maggie (the first post of hers I read had me in floods of tears), Anita (handy travel hints and stunning photos from across the world) and an amazing insight into someone else’s mind at Halfway.

Standing tall and proud, it bears the only light,
Illuminating and radiating, warmth and smell abound,
As bright as the sun, as dark as the night,
Two opposing sides, battling for control.
One by one the petals unfurl, revealing an inner beauty,
The pinky white tinges of deeper crimson,
And suddenly the stamen and stigma revealed,
Their weakness, the inner, fragile weakness.
Slowly, time passes as petals fall from their height,
Tumbling to the floor with a pitter patter sound,
Cold is setting in, all the smell worn out,
Now is their time to wilt.
After their dehydration, after all the wrinkles,
After the colours fade from the eye,
The pollen all blows away, staining the heart,
Until the blinding stalks falter, fade and fall.
