Like dandelions in Springtime…

When I die,
my atoms will come undone.
I’ll be space dust, once again.

The wind will carry me,
and scatter me everywhere,
like dandelions in springtime

I’ll visit worlds and alien moons,
it will be so damn poetic
until I land on your sandwich.

    • When I photograph landcapes I always try and find poetry that matches the grandeur of the mountains and this poem struck me because when we are all gone, those mountains will still be there, we are only fleeting in their timescale :)

  1. This idea of one’s atoms once more returning to the earth to be recycled as daffodils or blades of grass or cells in another being has always given me great comfort.. not sure about the landing in someone’s sandwich though but I guess that’s how you’d become cells in another body.. The poem made me chuckle. Stunning black and white Helen!

I would love to know what you thought of this article...

Sitting on the top of Little Mell Fell last Thursday night watching summer slip away behind Clough Head. eating cheese sandwiches for my supper and listening to Band of Horses on my iPhone. Perfection ☀️☀️☀️ #lakedistrict #fujix100t #fujilove #LakeDistrict #fells #sunset #soloadventure The flavours of Autumn in the UK; made an Apple & Blackberry crumble and enjoyed it with lashings of vanilla custard. It feels darker this morning, I just love this time of year.. 🍁🍄🍂🍁🍂🍏 #iphone6 #autumn #fall #crumble #mymonthofsundays Went out on a Kayak today along Derwentwater, slicing through the mist down to Manesty was lovely and swift, getting back upwind was a little harder. Nice blisters and a few good shots, Happy Days 😊💙 #lakedistrict #derwentwater #nicholendmarina #kayak #kayaking #lake #soloadventure Went and sat on the top of Little Mell Fell on Thursday night to eat my supper and watch the sun set on a rather beautiful autumn day. Not a cloud in the sky at all. That could have been the last of the U.K. sunshine for six months (joke) ((I hope not😊))... #iphone6 #lakedistrict #copper #bracken #fells Good Morning October 🍁🍂🎃🍄 #fujixt1 #lakedistrict #thirlmere #timber #autumn On Saturday I hiked around Thirlmere, a nice ten mile leg stretch, nature provided a sweet buffet for me. So nice to be back home just at the beginning of Autumn. #blackberries #autumn #fujixt1 #fujilove #lakedistrict #hedgerow
