Shortly before I published yesterday’s post of spring blossom photos from NYC, Damien from Paris published this wonderful poem on his blog Deuximepeau; Picturing Poetry.
Here I share Damien’s poem and photograph with his permission. The presentation here differs slightly to his own blog-post.
From: The Burden of Beauty

Deuximepeau; Picturing Poetry
Between the lines and through the lens …
The Burden of Beauty
walk under the bloom
As branches bend with beauty,
Not all perfection is weightless,
Even the blossom must bare its
Burden upon a branch
All words and photographs by Damien B. Donnelly
