Draped in crepe

Orange hued petals

Alive with fragility

The Promise Of Spring

Crocus flower

Oh worry not weary one

Spring shall surely come

Winter shall soon be done

Oh worry not weary one

Spring’s life has begun

And winter must succum

Oh worry not weary one

Spring shall surely come

Triolet

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Genesis 8:22

Rosa Rosaceae

Rose bloom in colors of peach, yellow and pink

I think that I shall

Never see

Any one so lovely

Syllable Lune

On my walk this evening I saw this beautiful rose in bloom in a yard I was passing by. It seemed to be glowing in the evening sunlight. I could not just pass it by without taking a photo. I just love its multi colors. Such beauty needs to be remembered!

Solitary Sight

Purple Petunia blooming

A flower’s purpose

Is to seek to grow and bloom

Wherever planted.

On my walk today, when I saw this little purple petunia in bloom, looking so pretty and strong though growing all alone in an obscure place, I had to stop to admire it.

It wasn’t in a big beautiful garden. It didn’t have ideal soil and light, but it still grew and bloomed.

And whether anyone else noticed it there in its little corner of the world, didn’t really matter, because it did what it was supposed to do. It fulfilled its purpose. And in doing so, it inspired me.

This made me think about my life, my purpose, my growth, and it was good food for thought as my tummy made hungry sounds causing my feet to make their way towards home as the sun begun to set on another Summer day.

Grow-Bloom-Inspire

Knowing your purpose

Seeking to ways to fulfill

Leads to accomplishment
