Being reflected

World Water Day 22.03.2014

????????

It was more than it is

life bringing seed and an empty cog

????????

It is more than it shows

one waterdrop in a leaky cockleshell

????????

It shows more than it bears

two skies, one sun, a house roof with chimney, many trees

????????

 

 

It bears more than it gives

nothing to touch to take away, only in mirror

SONY DSC

 

It gives more than it takes

a spoon stardust for a second world

????????

???????? SONY DSC ????????

It takes so much more

when disappearing

than it was

in the beginning

????????

????????

  2. It amazes me how much you can see through one tiny drop… beautiful words, stunning pictures….
    Bardzo ciekawe zdjecia, Panie Andrzeju.

  3. The amazing starts with me, and I’m happy having transferred some of the reasons to other people.
    I didn’t know earlier about the World Water Day, only yesterday accidentally I found this out. Don’t you think I should be the Ambassador of Water, after all those photos, stories and poems about raindrops, dew, snow and icicles?
    Each drop is special, but this one is very special because of the symbolism: en empty seed shell of the geranium pratense (meadow cranesbill, bodziszek łąkowy) remained attached to the first leaf of the seedling, as they frequently do, and being empty it got filled with water. The drop didn’t leak out, they can that, and this started its other life as a small mirror, photographer, and of course water container in the form of a small cog, bringing more than it contained.
    On the upper surface we have a mirrored picture of the sky above my house with the roof and chimney behind which the sun started to be visible.
    And in the drop self we see another picture, of the sight behind the drop – some trees, and the north sky.
    And something I had never seen before – some black dust (I call it „burnt light”) on the bottom of the drop which appears to be a container itself although it has no walls.

    • Well, I officially nominate you then the Ambassador of Water!🙂
      I am learning a lot about the mystery of those tiny droplets from you and your stunning pictures. You have a very unique way of sharing with others the world that surrounds you. There is magic (physics) everywhere! Magic captured in colors and reflections of colors, painted on the sky and inside a flower, drawn in the snow or sand… written on the leaf…
      Great work, as it should be – for you are the Ambassador🙂
