Glistening (Exotic Red Torch Ginger) by 

Large Exotic Red Torch Ginger (from the ‘Etlingera Ginger’ family).

  • Amidst tall green ginger stalks
    Lush canopy foliage surrounds
    Coyly nestles a large exotic torch ginger flower
    Saturated red pink
    Multiple finger-long and waxy tongue-like curled petals
    Finely outlined white-tipped edgings defined
    Lingering rain droplets
    Glistening in the dawn’s sunlight
    Clinging …

My “creative art practice” may be be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:
~ “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”

    I’m so much love this flower,
    beautiful capture!!

  • Appreciate your comments Rainy. We have ‘many’ heliconias plants as been growing them for many years. They’ve definitely recovered from last years Cyclone Yasi’s horrific winds and continue to ‘spread out’ in our large backyard naturally, with no help from me. Now they require a really good cut back.
