Resilience

To open, fold back each layer

expose your inner colors

is nothing small.

I see courage in your willingness

to fully bloom. Expose the tender.

A relentless showing under a threatening sky.

After the loss of petals, burnt leaves.

You still choose the sun over fear

knowing the rains never stop

and summer doesn’t last.

  1. Beautiful writing once again. Sun over fear, always light will guide your way. Sure we may all fall but we all have a choice to get back up and shine again, do it all over again. We can all learn from a flower – full bloom, full loss, and full bloom once again.

    1. Mabel, I love your response, “We can all learn from a flower – full bloom, full loss, and full bloom once again.” A beautify summation and nature is a perfect example for us to follow.
      Have a glorious day and be kind to yourself.
