Flower Talk  

Even in the darkest thoughts and darkest days the seed lies waiting.  
Waiting for the darkness to pass,
Waiting for the light to give warmth,
Waiting to come back.

Where the Blooms Begin

Darkness surrounds the seed.  
Starkness, Fear, Loss, Doubt, Anger, Grief
Slowly, in time, warmth returns.  
Hope whispers to the seed,
Light invades the darkness, slowly, gradually, pushing the seed to open.

Waiting to Bloom

Now a garden,
Comfort, Happiness, Love and Life return,
Returning to the ground where the seed once lay.
