I adopt Victoria's meaning of Daffodils, "new beginnings."

Be your own flower
A flower is a joy
in its colors
in its variety
in its symmetry
and especially in its blooming state.
Allow your self to burst.
A flower is a beauty
in its thorns
in its vines
in its irregular patterns
and even in its warding-off smell.
Allow your self to sense beauty.
A flower carried meaning
in the Victorian era
and especially in each one of us.
Allow your self to carry your own.*
I adopt Victoria's meaning of red tulip, "a declation of love."
