Nature's Place

Painted Stranger

P1080441 - Mark Berkery

Once more unto the breach, dear friends – however small that hole may be. And never relent in the making of light, no matter what the impediment.

P1080424 - Mark Berkery

That’s what this endeavour of mine is at times; a reminder to acknowledge the simple good of sense through the wall of mind or physical pain that depends only on what I attend to – largely.

And so there was this visitor in the garden that I had only before seen in passing flight, its size and flash of colour the only track of its existence. A mystery until it presented in masked form, a mystery still.

The Passion-fruit Vine attracts many a visitor these days, being of fruiting maturity, flowers of delightful aroma. An oasis to many a little one, the fairies and elves of our nature, that come and go as they please.

Occasionally inspected by the Vine’s guardians, the little army of black ants that know no fear or favour – just the command of form and function.

There is no disposition in nature to give up, until the end, of form and function – missing a piece of a leg a beginning, a common condition – mobility being essential in an ever moving world.

Anything not mobile is ant food.
