Zyryality: She Whispered In My Ear

I hear her fragile whisper in my ear: "I'm here, my darling, finally I'm here".

Today is the last gasp of frosty winter.  Spring whispers flutter in the air.

I sure hope you're right, Viktor. This really has been a cold snap here in Atlanta!

But Spring DOES whisper in our ears. I don't think I've ever thought of an image as a whisper but if ever there was one, it would be this. A wispy whisper.
vz-nostalgia: That cold snap, Ms. Ginnie, IS the last gasp. A wispy whisper is a good way to put it.

Aaahh ... c'est ça !! Je me demandais ce qui pouvait bien murmurer sans cesse dans mes oreilles ... Nous paierons très cher les températures si douces qui règnent ici depuis plusieurs jours. A continuer ainsi, dans quelques années, cette fleur ne s'ouvrira plus car elle aura disparu ...
vz-nostalgia: See, you have to pay attention, Ms. France. If something murmurs to your ear, you have to pay attention. It could be very important. Intuition is a very powerful thing to be ignored.
Don't be afraid that Bordeaux will turn into a city in the desert. You'll be long gone by then. smile

Very artistic, Viktor. The softness of the flower is unique for a macro shot like this and works beautifully. The texture of the background is also quite lovely.
vz-nostalgia: If you sweep all the technical aspects from the top of your thoughts, Ms. Jewlya, and leave just pure emotions, what could we hear then? smile

I love the delicacy of this photograph...the flower looks like it was made from a sweep of a paintbrush. It's a really serene and pretty shot.
vz-nostalgia: smile, clixpix. A delicacy is another way to describe a whisper.

We have had the sunniest February since about 1929 or somesuch. So will probably have the wettest coldest March! Lovely delicate shot.
vz-nostalgia: Shouldn't complain, Bill. That thing is called a balance. A pendulum always goes back to where it started. You gain some, you lose some. smile

[..no...no! Think it, but don't write it!]

So happy for all you frost-bitten folks that spring is about to spring.

It appears this gorgeous thing got a jump-start on everyone else.
vz-nostalgia: Don't you miss observing the change of seasons, Ray? Having a perpetual summer is like having chocolate for breakfast, lunch and dinner, isn't it? smile

So soft, so tender, so poetical- all senses are evoced, especially a feast for the eyes, a "Augenweide" (in German, can't be translated) - this melting shades of green and some dots of yellow and beige and pale blue- the painter Spring has used his most beautiful colours and also the musician Spring comes nearer and nearer, yes, I can hear him: "...- Horch, von fern ein leiser Harfenton!
Frühling, ja du bist's!
Dich hab' ich vernommen!"
from: Mörike, Er ist's; Oh Kathryn, could you perhaps translate this wonderful spring-poem?)
vz-nostalgia: Eduard Mörike:
It's Him!
Spring displays His ribbon blue
fluttering through air's expanses,
sweet aromas over fences
touch with hope the lands anew.
Violet still dreams,
dreams of soon appearing.
Hark! the sounds of distant harps, it seems!
Yes, my Spring, it's You!
You I have been hearing!

That's beautiful, Ms. Philine. How interesting that you see Spring as an Artist and a Musician. But you're right, with Spring coming our senses are overloaded with new colors and new sounds.

Viktor, you're simply the BEST!
And it's not just the photos alone, but your choice of prose or poetry, or poetic prose that accompanies nearly each photo. Keep on!
vz-nostalgia: Oh John. I'm glad you noticed the progress. You knew me, since the time when I couldn't put two words together in English. Ha-ha-ha. Now, it's not me who choose the words, it's the words speak through me. smile

vz-nostalgia: I go under many names, but no one ever called me Heavenly Viktor smile
My great pleasure.

This image of the beautiful delecate flower is wispering indeed, Spring is in the air....thanks Viktor for showing this beauty to us...have a great weekend.
vz-nostalgia: Glad you enjoyed this tiny delicate flower, Ms. Astrid. It was no more then 5 millimeters in size.

The delicate colours of the flower are a real contrast to the vibrant spring green of the background. An image of hope to come...
Ingrid
vz-nostalgia: an image of hope... till one frosty night comes and turns this poem into a song of despair... smile

And the birds are beginning to sing it out loud. So delicate.
vz-nostalgia: The birds are the first who hear the flutter of the whispers, Ms. Pixie.
dreamy
vz-nostalgia: Ooops... Looks like I put you to sleep, Ms. Alicia smile Stop by next Tuesday, I'll wake you up. smile

Viktor, I'm very, very impressed by your translation of the Mörike-poem, and your words are really in the poetic spirit, self the lines end with rhymes! I'm happy that now English speaking members can read these verses (which never seem to be translated before), for I think they belong to the most beautiful ones I know!
It is interesting: Your Spring is a 'she' (I understand why), in German Spring is a 'he' (because of the grammatical gender of the word, especially as an allegorical statue in Barock gardens) a young vivacious, ecstatic, funny and poetical man or boy, full of hope and wishes...! Your pic, added by this poem, is for me one of the most beautiful spring-photos I ever have seen!
vz-nostalgia: Oh Ms. Philine, I'm so flattered that you thought I translated this wondeful poem. I still have ways to go mastering my English, and there is no chance I can resurrect my German. I found the translation on the net http://myweb.dal.ca/waue/Trans/Moerike-Fruehling.html
I did pay attention at the difference in gender in perception of Spring in different cultures. In Russia, Spring is a beautiful girl/young lady. Honestly, I'm not sure if Spring in English has any gender at all.
I'm so glad you like this image that much, Ms. Philine.
ps. Were you disappointed that it was not my translation? Give me a few more years, Ms. Philine. I'll catch up, I promise. smile

in our culture, spring is life, is beginning of new year, new kind of life, 1th spring is the start of Iranian new year, and in first week of the spring, Zartosht had been born and spring, is one of the last hopes in Iranian's life, in these days that we are in jail, we are terrorist we are worst in the world, in these days that we and our ancient country, aren't ourselves... we seek spring again, and we hope , spring will tell us where we can find ourselves again, we hope...we are waiting for spring again..our beautiful spring....
vz-nostalgia: In any culture spring is life, Babak, but I didn't know that New Year in Iran starts in spring. You know, I like it better. It does make sense. Is that the belief in Iran that Zarathushtra was born in spring? Interesting, as no one knows WHAT YEAR he was born (a margin of error is a few thousand years!).
Hey, no one believes all Iranians are terrorists and worst of the world. Please don't confuse rhetoric of politicians with thoughts of simple people. I do believe though that Spring will come to Iran one day. No one believed, even Reagan himself, that the Soviet Union will collapse so fast, but it happened.
It might take awhile, Babak, but Spring will come to Iran.
