Weekly Photo Challenge: TWO SUBJECTS

April is the cruelest month, breeding

Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing

Memory and desire, stirring

Dull roots with spring rain.

 The opening of The Waste Land, by T.S. Eliot

And what do we have here? Lilacs breeding? Or “dead land” of ancient bark?

Two subjects? Or one indivisible?

    Super post! I love the colours of the buds – so vibrant. Only Mother Nature seems to have those colours in her palette!

  4. I would ‘like’ this twice! Great shot.

    Excellent interpretation of this week’s challenge.

  9. Why is this reminding me of your post about learning something new, letting something go? Is it just the theme of the week or are you playing with thoughts of duality otherwise?

      I think more and more I find the theme of two subjects disconcerting. And untenable. If things are a subject, they are not separate, they are linked. Somehow it’s about “no division” — everything is connected, and therefore one.
      Ooops — does this sound like satori or something? Doubt it!

    New life is wonderful, no matter how it arrives.
