Bachelor Endgame

fascinating how life
      surprises people

   and we're not alone
   surprises are there
for all of us and more

      it looked radically
different when i looked

      like nothing i 
had seen before

i knew it was a 
      flower's end

and a new beginning
   its how it goes

   not too long ago
it was bright blue

      a vivid colour
anyone would see

fascinating how life
      surprises people

and we're not alone
   surprises are there
for all of us and more

  1. A stunning photograph, and I wonder what species this is? I’m guessing something with Bachelor in its common name, and botanically in the Asteraceae (formerly Compositae).
    The Bachelor name pressed a flowery button with me as I have reached an endgame, seemingly, in a particular friendship… Now I am looking on into brighter surprises, perhaps not the “end … a new beginning/ it’s how it goes”


    1. Thank you Array!

      We call these (vivid blue) flowers ‘bachelor buttons’. They appear to attract hummingbirds. I believe I have posted several photographs of them recently. I plan the post even more.

      I’m sorry about the fading friendship. We are lonely creatures and need companionship. We look for good companions and sometimes find them. I lost one friend when absolutely unacceptable behaviour ruled out any future association. As I write, I remember previous examples, where I could not forgive…

      And then there’s a few 80-something-year-olds who I will probably want to stay friends with until we are gone. A physician, a veterinarian and an artist.

      Bachelor Button! Sorry. Sometimes people do unforgivable things and we see that they no longer have value in our lives. We have to sever all ties. I have not done it often, or recently.
