Magpie Tales Photo Prompt Seven





become me 



are you lonely 
sunlit Narcissus? 

I walk the garden 
and your minions 
become 

me.

    I love how you capture becoming ONE with the natural beauty surrounding you --- as you walk the garden and get transformed
    -- "and your minions become me."

    Really nice,

  6. Looks like I'm the only thickie here! I don't understand the last two words. Become as in suit? Or turn into? Sorry, I'm probably just having a senior moment...
