Queen Anne's Lace
Bursting. Yes, this flower is bursting
with flowers. Just a few hours before
it burst forth with blooms. Each head
is bursting with flowers. Just the sight
of it makes me swoon.
It has been a rough week here in the
United States. Two set of sisters killed
by one of their husbands or boyfriends.
One sister pregnant, several of the
sisters mothers. Two cousins first
thought drowned now thought to be
abducted. Questions about one
of the father's and his associates.
Then, a fun night out at the movies
turns into a nightmare. 12 dead,
58 wounded, a nation in shock and
Which brings me back to flowers. Flowers
for funerals, flowers for hospital
rooms, flowers to say "I love you",
"I am thinking of you", "I hurt
for you", "I am sorry","Thank You",
"Congratulations". Flowers to cheer
us up, to give us hope, to remind us
that there will be beauty again.
