Spring Blossom Poem

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.

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
