What need has the grass
of anything I offer?
We seek the same rain.

  8. Terrific capture for the day! Love your composition and the perfect words as always! Wonderful skies and that is GREEN grass and a very interesting building! Happy SWF! Hope you have a great weekend!


  9. a beautiful place! i wonder how it looks inside. happy skywatching!

  10. So perfect in its trusting simplicity.

  18. You always have such beautiful pictures. I love the simple complexity of this.

  19. love this picture. The different colors and textures. Both the grass and the building look so important.

  20. A beautiful lawn serves to soften the lines and curves of this magnificent piece of architecture. Terrific photo!

  21. stunning haiku. coming from a dry, cracked, parched Texas draught

  22. made me wonder if the grass might ask a similar question. made me wonder if we are enough alike that we don’t realize how much we mean to one another. thank you

  23. Oh,what a lovely view your words embark~

  24. Well, you’ve posed a pretty interesting question, MMT~ I can’t think of anything we truly offer the grass (maybe planting, weeding, watering), but it offers us coolness, spiritual well-being, chlorophyll, holder of soil and rain… However, there is something larger: the higher power who supplies the rain and makes this mutual connection possible. I have a feeling that you are a brilliant prof, MMT~
