Honeysuckle Flower Lock Screen

For June, I studied the humble honeysuckle flower. I never noticed that it “hugs” bricks, fences and trees as it grows. That embracing nature has given it an association with togetherness and friendship.

As I learned about the honeysuckle flower, I came across a lovely poem by Phillip Freneau, The Wild Honeysuckle.

From morning suns and evening dews

At first thy little being came:

If nothing once, you nothing lose,

For when you die you are the same;

   The space between is but an hour,

   The mere idea of a flower.

Phillip Freneau, The Wild Honeysuckle

I’ve always been familiar with the flower. It would grow along the fences at my favorite childhood beach. Their smell is a strong part of my summer memories. But, I never thought of it as particularly symbolic as it gripped and grew into unexpected places.

It’s a lovely burst of sweetness — peaking out to surprise the eyes.
