“Unrequited love has Winter for Spring ~
Spring presents herself, but Winter does not want to take leave.
He delivers an unwelcome snow that covers the blooms Spring has brought forth.
The blooms pout as the weight of the snow bears down on them
and prevents them from sharing their glory.”

In the “History and Language of Flowers”, one of the meanings of the daffodil is unrequited love. The above poem was inspired by this meaning of the Daffodil.
To see another black and white photograph of a Daffodil covered with snow visit Monochromia for my Thursday post.
An exquisite image…Janet
Many thanks Janet!!
Oh that’s so sad but still beautiful! There are many metaphors within your words Robyn.
Thank you Sarah! Have a wonderful day!
In the Gold Country of California located in Volcano is a place called Daffodil Hill. Privately owned, the farm opens for about 4 weeks when daffodils bloom and closes when it rains. This year viewing was cut short due to rain. I guess we certainly need rain.
Oh I would love to see that Marlene!
We had a sudden blizzard blow in yesterday, closing all the major and minor roads. This morning snow was everywhere, but this afternoon it was already beginning to melt, and crocus, hyacinths, and daffodils were struggling to break free.
Thank you! I saw on the news that you were expecting a blizzard, Marylin! I hope you are warm and all plowed out by now. Wondering if you still had snow for Easter. Have a fabulous week!
I envy your ability to write and shoot. Perhaps admire is a better word.
You are so sweet Laurie! Thanks so much!
Agree. I like your wording – it is like a canvas for a image
