A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I canโ€™t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me, or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- And if you want fb you can go to my page, linkedin- my email id and I am in goodreads and completelynovel too I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)

16 thoughts on “Edelweiss

  1. I have a Netflix disc of the movie, Sound of Music, sitting on my desk at this moment. I remember from watching this movie so many times in the past that Edelweiss is the beautiful white flower of Austria that the Von Trapp family sing about. I, too, have always been curious about it. Thank you for sharing your lovely verse and painting honoring this flower. Blessings to you, Trisha…

    1. I just LOVE that movie- from first scene to last. Its a movie that has won my heart and soul.

      that song is a pure magic- i will never have enough of it.

  2. Oh, this was so lyrical and lovely, Trisha. I’m humming the song now. Sound of Music is one of my favorites and your beautiful poem brought it to mind.

  3. It is a beautiful flower. It’s hard to find them in the mountains anymore, so it is a wonderful thing to see one there. But people in Switzerland and Austria also plant them in their gardens.

    1. same thing has happened with a lot of common wild plants in India too, giving up to human encroachment.

      its a wise idea to plant them in garden, or else they will absolutely vanish.

  4. I first heard about that flower from The Sound of Music. I’ve never seen it with my eyes either. You made it sound so beautiful and intriguing.

    I’ve gotten behind in my visiting and posting. Was out all day yesterday and evening with my mother. ๐Ÿ™‚
