Poetry and Sculpture by Hibiscus

      This Summer I have been busy painting sculptural forms in the plant kingdom. Many Summers back I was busy writing poems. This year when I look at the Hibiscus blooms in my garden, it seems that they are doing both simultaneously. So here is a series of photographs that convey the poem in action.

In the beginning there was one (see 1 below)

then there were two (see 2 below)

and soon the family grew. (see 3 below)

Here is the next generation (see 4 below)

and this is the result of a full
Summer of procreation!

      As for painting sculptural forms, look at the buds closely (see 4 above). They consist of layers of petals overlapping each other in a spiral formation. The colors are cool, summery with deep tones hidden inside conveying depth and mystery. Nice to capture a beautiful moment from the present. Cheers to the poetry and sculpture by  Hibiscus!
