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...

An early start yesterday, but I was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise in Sleepy Hollow. All the leaves have blown away now and the trees look like paper doilies.. 💜 #LakeDistrict #dawn #matte #fujixt1 #jpeg #fujilove Snow has arrived in The Lake District overnight. Dashed out with my new/old camera, a 1977 Hasselblad and shot the tree at the end of my garden. 🌲 #hasselblad #hasselblad500cm #snowfall #LakeDistrict #kodakportra160 That's a wrap Autumn, the last few windy days have blown most of the leaves away. The trees are bare and I'm still doing the snow dance 🍂🍂⛄️⛄️ #lakedistrict #f2 #fujifilm #fujix100t #autumn #fall Only about 6wks until I fly back into Reykjavik, it will be my third visit to Iceland. It's a Landscape photographers dream location. ⛄️⛄️⛄️ #reykjavik #iceland #church #thingvellir I bought a kayak this summer, I was looking forward to being out on the water watching misty sunrises, beautiful sunsets on the lake, but I didn't factor in gorgeous hidden boathouses.. #LakeDistrict #boathouse #derwentwater #keswick #kayak #perceptionkayaks #fujix100t #fujilove Oh November, where have you been all of my life 🍁🍁🍁🐿 #iphone6 #maple #japanesemaple #red #ruby #autumn #fallforfall #leafpeeping #foliage
