The lightness of a petal,
drinking rays from the blue
Winds force its shape to opposite directions
An adjacent sunflower, big and bold covers the flood of rays
The petal, wilts to a softness, in the dark
Slowly, day by day it falls apart
Side to side, swayed towards the dirt
In defeat, feeds the earth beneath.
A new purpose now awakened.
Change is inevitable
Ego only knows the mind and the body. Not the heart, not the love. Listen to your soul.
