“If you love a flower….

…don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love…” -Osho

So I will admire you for all that you are
The way that you bloom and gaze up at stars
The way that your beauty is simple but rare
The way that you flourish planted there
With a grateful heart, I will leave you be
And the love you have shared, I will take with me


Rose Bush


I planted a rose bush
So I may admire
the flowers that bloom
and the love that’s transpired
but from this rose bush
there are thorns that grow
thus, be humble when loving
the entirety of a rose

“One of the most powerful art pieces at #burningman this year: the sculpture of two adults fighting, backs to one another… yet the inner child in them both just wants to connect and love one another. Age has so many beautiful gifts, but one that I could live without is the pride and resentment we hold onto when we are in conflict with others. The forgiving, open and free spirit of children is OUR TRUE NATURE; and I know I’ll be remembering this next time I’m feeling stubborn.” ~ Free and Equal
