It's time again to showcase some great photo art!
(If you are new to Photo Art Friday, you can read the guidelines for participation here.)
This week we have two options for the art we will hang in our virtual gallery:
1. any piece of photo art that pleases you; OR
2. a piece of photo art that features a quotation, inspiring words or even a poem that has significance for you. I have chosen the later.

The partial edit from the poem by Galway Kinnell comes from the piece entitled St. Francis And The Sow. I love these words. We can all use the reminder whether as parent, child, friend, colleague, human, that we can take the time to remind someone of their intrinsic goodness or loveliness ... until they can own that knowledge and nurture and bless/love themselves from within.
In case you cannot easily read Galway Kinnell's words on the image, here they are:
stands for all things
even those things that don't flower,
for everything flowers,
from within, of self-blessing;
though sometimes it is necessary
to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on the brow of the flower
and retell it in words and in touch
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within,
of self-blessing ...
St. Francis and the Sow
For next week's Photo Art Friday we have the options of:
1. linking up any piece of photo art we wish to showcase
2. a piece of photo art that somehow reflects "new life".
