Microcosm #midnighthaiku

Wildflower carpet

Cerulean petals fly

Perfectly disguised

A stark headland juts out into the sea. Limestone cliffs tower, bleak and open to the winds. The grass grows close to the earth, hugging her slopes for protection against the elements. From the road, beauty seems bleak.

Step out of the car and walk on the grass, though, and you can see that a resilient beauty carpets the earth.  A profusion of the tiniest flowers in purple, amber and gold. Harvesting their bounty, small blue butterflies flutter… a world in miniature. Unless you look, you would never know.
