Fire: Be your own flower

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
in poetry
in stories
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."
