I saw this while I was looking for a good Monday Motivation quote and was immediately drawn to it. I am not where the design came from but it’s great.
Winter, summer, spring, and fall
despite what is said and too often believed- a flower can bloom anytime.
Within, that’s where the beauty is found, with all its color stripped.
Given a glimpse of sun,
given a drip of water,
given a chance,
the roots take hold.
Capture it in your mind, memories forever give the kind of justice a photograph fails to do.
Perspective can change anything.
Behind the bars, trapped on the inside but protected for the cold.
Beautiful either way.
You appear so suddenly- yet expected.
You only ask- you were never taught how to give.
I am done answering.
So often, too often it’s chewed away.
In the forest or on a city street,
there is constant chipping.
Something stronger or something preying on the weak, equally unnerving.
Foundations forever removed,
Facades continually replaced,
I wait for the opportunity of new life.
