To see a World in a Grain of Sand,
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And Eternity in an hour.

William Blake (1757 – 1827)

    Such a gentle, cheerful photo.:-)

  4. Lisl says:

    I think the colours here are unusual and go together so well, Cherie

  5. So what was Blake trying to tell us here, eh?!
    Size doesn’t matter? Ha~

  6. Steve Hayes says:

    Love the picture. I can’t say why, but it just appeals to me.

  7. james higham says:

    Even in adversity can be heaven.

  8. Holding infinity in the palm of my hand is easy, sort of, if there really is infinity out there (or in there),

    But holding eternity in an hour?

    and Heaven in a flower?

    Pretty words do tend to leave me unconvinced. They disguise much wishful thinking. I do wish I could wishfully think though. Life would be easier.

    • CherryPie says:

      To me flowers ‘are heaven’ so that bit is not wishful thinking. As to time, it seems to get ever faster, I would love to find a way to slow it down!

  9. Great minds think alike ;-) .

    Same quote two very different photographs, it is quite inspiring Cherry.
