Weekly Photo Challenge Late: Unusual

This photograph reminds me of one of my favorite poems.  It is something to think about anytime you get caught up in the mainstream guilt of never doing quite enough in your life or in this world.  This poem really says it all in the grand scheme of things.  I never realized this as I “accidentally” leaned my homemade trellis against my garage one day when storm clouds came into view, planning to finish it later.  It had a very convenient overhang that kept all these little ones dry in the storm.  I looked out to see them all sitting there and took this shot with my telephoto from my house.  Unusual enough to make me dig out the camera for this shot and I felt happy for them that I did this.  I ended up leaving it here for the summer.

If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking

by Emily Dickinson

If I can stop one heart from breaking,

I shall not live in vain;

If I can ease one life the aching,

or cool one pain,

Or help one fainting robin unto it’s nest again,

I shall not live in vain.

    Ah…yeah. Perfect capture. The birds look like they are meant to be there. I am sure that’s not the last you see of them. And I love your trellis.
