She Oak Peace Grove – Black Madonna

  1. These photographs and the verse are nothing short of extraordinary Monika. I am in awe that such a flag is flying near you. We should begin a movement to have them fly all over the world.

  2. I agree, Heather. Extraordinary.

  3. I love e.e. cummings. That was an inspiring pairing of images and words.

  4. Great, Karen 😉
