Chrysanthemum is often overlooked by ordinary people because of its petite beauty and fragile nature. In the eyes of Chinese poets, however, these flowers have a certain mystical quality that evokes a sense of wonder.
Tao Yuanming, a famous Chinese landscape poet, created a leisurely and peaceful scene through the Nanshan chrysanthemums in his works. Through his poetry, he immortalized the chrysanthemum as a symbol of solace and refuge, and its presence was soon intertwined with the Hermit Master. My photography also captures this sense of stillness and peace, using creative techniques to express the deep connection between Chrysanthemum and Tao Yuanming.
The ancient connection between this flower and Chinese poetry is fascinating and poignant. The image of the chrysanthemum evokes a deep appreciation for beauty and simplicity, reminding us of the importance of appreciating the little things in life. As we savor the peace and tranquility of this moment, we are inevitably drawn to reflect on our own lives and contemplate the majestic beauty of nature around us. Through the chrysanthemum, time stands still, and we realize the power of patience and gratitude. In doing so, we come to understand how art and poetry can be used to imbue our lives with deep meaning.
