Listen! Someone’s Crying! –Mary Olivia Patiño
“We know that all creation is groaning in labor pains even until now…”
Creation groans in pain
Crying out to a jaded humanity
Keeps right on playing
Polluting her lakes
Burning her forests
Killing her cubs
Contaminating her air
Blocking her fertility.
Listen! Someone’s Crying!
An Intricate Orange Blossum

Nature photography is one of my favorite hobbies. I find inspiration in creation and have found it sparks the writer’s fire within me. You are welcome to submit a photo that you took with a brief description, i.e., title, place taken, why it caught your attention.
Some of these photos were inspired by my sister, Rosemary, when she stayed with me for a few months. She brought hundreds of plants, including unique specimens which were quite beautiful! Her trip to Hawaii a few years back introduced her to the beautifully and diversely scented plumeria. She works diligently with her plants, just like our Mother does, and brings forth healthy life. Some of the container plants are mine. It’s a good mix, I think.
The bougainvillia below and in slide show is from my Mother’s garden. She nurtured it into a beautiful tree. Last year, this wonderful gift of nature inspired me to compose a Mother’s Day poem for her.
