Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Translucent Tulips

Captured as the early morning sun, transformed them to look like pieces of stained glass.
Once in a while, I manage to snap a picture I am so thrilled with. This is one of them.
