Sometimes the most difficult
situations turn out to be
hothouses that force us to go

from bud to bloom. 

Even if it seems like
nothing good 
could ever grow
in such a wasteland,
be open to possibility.


Depth and beauty on every level Meri. If this is a taste of what you want to publish, I can't wait!

An excellent meditation and a glorious Pink Peony rendered beautifully by you. One of my favorite flowers. They are divinity itself. Thank you.
