Perfect Pentagon

The beautiful building blocks of life appear all around us.  Elemental structures are quietly harmonizing our universe, and our souls.

On this mid-summer morning, while watering the garden I stopped to enjoyed the bright, trailing trumpet vines cascading over the fence.  Looking closer at the buds, I am delighted to find a perfect three-dimensional pentagon. A day-time star. The mysterious shape of  life, symbol for Water and fertility, the 5-fold symmetry, it’s twin: a pentagram.

So here, a little Golden Ratio to cheer me on as I wash dishes at the kitchen sink…

For my part I know nothing with any certainty

but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
