King Protea is an exotic Hawaiian plant. The blooms captivated me at first sight.
I had a little fun with art and photography by drawing a couple of these magnificent blooms and using the photo app to enhance the colors in photo two.
My ideas came from art and photos on Pinterest.

Thanks to the artist MDH.
Overgrown green, moving downward
By nature, rampant, running tangles.
Bursting forth, by both self and soul
In overlooked whitewashed vessels.
Tiny rain-soaked pots and stones
Precious, hidden, glorious.
Flourish yet untended
There’s one who cares for you.
Cherubim and tiny blooms bow down before Him
Gaze ever sun-ward
Summer Morning Song
Fledgling-deeply, slept-buried and softly hidden
Risen-securely rooted-warmed with evening sun
Hope incarnate-in a Summer Morning garden
Symbols, seen and unseen
Blazing heat, shade in shadow
Centering, rounding, promising
In a summer morning garden
