Orbs of light, and love and life


the trees, the leaves,
the colours
of the landscape
and above them all
the ephemeral blue
of the sky...

while below,
in another season,
when all the leaves
have been blown away,
the roots are exposed
to make chairs
for the toads

when they visit
the squirrels for tea
Kay Davies, January, 2014

At the online writers' group, Imaginary Garden with Real ToadsMargaret has asked us to think about orbs by sharing with us some of the "global" pictures of Deborah Glessner, a creative woman experienced in art photography.

Those are very interesting orbs. Our friend got some orbs that are lighted at night and make the most lovely patterns on the patio. - Margy
