“Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.” – Leonard Cohen
Weeds without love. Torn and dying flowers. Dead insects and other animals. A tangle of brambles. Galls and burls. So much that’s not perfect is beautiful, magical, and soulful beyond words, beyond a photo, beyond belief.
For today, though, a photo will have to do, starting with the zinnias touched by frost and intimations of winter:
and one in bud …
there’s so much beauty in decay
