Among the blossoms
one vies with the crescent moon
for a brighter spot.

  1. There is always one vying for the centre spot – the place best to find the light it needs – i applaud that little blossom – it seems to have life in hand

  2. I hope there is always a flower that bends a little further.. But it also tends to shadow all the rest.

  3. aw…love the cute attempt 🙂

  4. That blossom needs the light for growth, who is to say which is the brighter spot..a reflective poem

  5. A little competition is sometimes a good thing.

  6. a beautiful moment captured in this

  7. I like the vying for a brighter spot……..

  8. Sigh… now that is gorgeous! ❤

  9. Effective reflection.

  10. And I am content with the shadows and dappled light….beautiful!

  11. luv the play of light and shadow

    much love…

  12. Each of us must survive in our own way for we don’t live for the day but for the future.

  13. We seem hard-wired not to share.
