DMC: "Artist at Rest" by Jessica Bigi


Finding my peace
Through camera's lens
Yellow leafy willow
Wild purple flowers
Hums of bumblebees
Butterfly flutter wings
Clamors of geese
Rippled silver waves
Whips of green marsh
Papery birch branches
Water lilies blooming
Snowberry moth hovers
Gathering garden pollens
Finding my peace
Through camera's lens
