The envy of the evergreens….

“How did the rose ever open its heart and give to this world all its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light against its Being.
Otherwise, we all remain too frightened”― Hafez

icecream bush

Sprinkled with dew
dressed in cerise,
she caught my eye,
her purpose to please,
and remind me of 
the continuance of life,
a revival of the Earth’s glorious design…

Once inconspicuous
no spark at all
drab and colorless
shyly blushing near the wall…

Until radiance poured from the heavens and endowed her with divine blessings…

She was once in hiding
not wanting
to be seen,
now she’s the envy of the evergreens…
