These words from my yoga-loving friend Danai Christelis speak to the joy that the wonder and beauty of flowers bring to our lives and I am grateful for her gift.
This is the message I received from her…
Your beautiful photography inspired me to write this poem..enjoy!
Those Seeds We Need to Sow.
By Danai Christelis
“Like petals of a flower What is the intent? To brighten someone’s sorrow Apologies not said? Carnivals and canopies Fading in the snow Those petals of the flower Are they just for show?
Like petals of a flower What is it all meant? Words not written by a loved one Memories of time spent? Wedding bells and baby showers Celebrations far and near Those petals of the flower Serene and oh so dear
Scattered in a milk bath Pressed inside a book Sketched onto a canvas Left wild to create that look A pocket full of fantasies Nature at its best Ladybirds and dragon flies Looking for a nest Like petals of a flower Where does it all go? When all things said are forgotten Those seeds we need to sow!”
