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...

A few weeks ago a group of friends hiked up Great Mell Fell and Little Mell Fell, where I shot this Bog Cotton. They are two of the smallest fells in the Lake District, but from the summit of LMF you have this incredible vista of the outer lying mountains. Because of the short 40mins climb required, I'm going to pop back late summer for a sunset shot. #VSCOcam #lakedistrict #blackandwhitephotography #bogcotton #recce I've always had a very healthy obsession with stationery, when I started painting that progressed to art supplies. I'm just enjoying my new Neocolor II oil pastels before I dive in.. #VSCOcam #neocolorII #oilpastels #doitfortheprocess #calledtobecreative All of the images I've shot on my iPhone this week have been shades of orange, peach or apricot, I think my subconscious wants me to paint with this colour and I must obey.  #VSCOcam #colourcrush #calledtobecreative #doitfortheprocess #apricots I spend the best part of yesterday morning in this brilliant second hand book store in Alnwick, thumbing through Penguin modern classics and looking at the beautiful illustrations on the covers of poetry & children's books from the 70's  which had a lovely folky feel to them. I bought an Art history book and a Albert Camus paperback. #barterbooks #alnwick #bookstore Stopped by the Pick your own Farm shop on my way home yesterday afternoon. My kitchen is full of the sweet fragrance of early summer🍓🍓🍓. #VSCOcam #strawberries #farmshop #summervibes Home on the Northumberland coast this weekend, visiting the Alnmouth Art Festival. Met some fantastic artists & photographers today. Dear North Sea - I miss you 💙 #VSCOcam #Northumberland #AlnmouthArt
