Backlit Bouquet Backlit Bouquet I photographed this scene for the obliquely backlit combination of bold yellow coneflower and delicate wormwood, but all the varied patterns and shades of green in the background, silhouettes, shadows, blurs and bokeh, were too interesting to crop out. Your beauty delicate, ephemeral, eternal; had I not chanced by as setting sun journeyed deep into the autumn woods to touch your face you would still have been as beautiful. verse ©2014 Bernadette E. Kazmarski That is the first draft of a new poem, written just now after I posted this photo. We’ll see what it develops into some time in the future. September 7: I have an edited version of this poem in progress…once I’d written the rest, I found I just didn’t need those two first lines, they felt heavy and formal, and without them I found I could reorganize the lines of the poem, especially that really long one that I couldn’t split before. I also changed the word “journeyed” to “reached” because it was more of what I’d intended, remembering the sunlight that day as it moved down toward the horizon and reached and touched different spots deep in the woods. Added a comma too. Had I not chanced by as setting sun reached deep into the autumn woods to touch your face, you would still have been as beautiful. . . . . . . .
