Leaves in summer, full of passion, always flirt

Roots in winter, compassionate, hold the dirt

  1. I also love and am grateful for how you inspire me, artist to artist. I see so much in simple nature/photos, too. It rejuvenates me that a few nature outings can stock me full of poetic insights and wisdom.


  2. It is amazing how much can be said in so few words, buried (pun intended) in endless layers beneath a few letters. I love this for that reason (and I am biased toward nature). I feel for the roots, who themselves feel, underground out of sight, in a dark, cold world and season, holding the dirt needed for those leaves to show off, feeling the weight, carrying the burden so selflessly.

  3. I agree with the different meanings of the two words however, don’t you think ‘dirt’ lends a lovely poetic effect here? Moreover the earth is unfortunately regarded as ‘dirty’ merely because we self-proclaimed superior beings stand, as if looking down at it. So the soil, to some extent, would be dirt(y). Just my thoughts here… 🙂

  4. Great picture. But instead of dirt I think you should have used soil. I have always had a problem with ‘dirt’. Dirt is something you clean-up. Soil is the earth.

  5. Nice parallels, yin and yang. Especially liked “full of passion” and “compassionate,” same root word (no pun intended). 🙂
