The Flowers

It doesn't take much to appreciate the flowers when you're walking through the weeds. It only takes a look, just a glance down, just a stop to see that the flowers are there. They are always there, even when we don't look. Aren't they? Those flowers hiding in the weeds.They're a wonder.

Sometimes I forget to see them.

This is a great time of year to enjoy the flowers. They have it all, beauty, diversity, and they smell good!

Flowers, like good people, often appear in the most unlikeliest places. I guess this reminds me that in every man, there is goodness when you try to look for it.

Thanks for the reflective post Liz.

Thank you Rain,
For stopping to comment and to enjoy the flowers. They do all have diversity and smell good. If only I could smell them with you.

ME Strauss said...

Yes Taorist,
They do, flowers and good people, have a way of showing up when we least expect them and so we should alway celebrae them.

Hey, let's not slight the weeds. I've often felt they needed my love more than the flowers that everyone else was fawning over. ;-)

Hey Tree,
You have a point. I promise to love the weeds too. After all, wildflowers are also called weeds by some.

There is too much meaning in field flowers to me or in my memories childhood.

ME Strauss said...

Too much meaning? I wonder how that could be? Too much meaning. . . only not enough meaning makes sense to me.

Yes, those flowers are nice! And what about the weeds? Do you see that they are equally beautiful? They are also flowers. =) Does their abundance blind us to there beauty or compiment it? If we give the kids ice cream everynight, on the hundredth day, does it taste as good as the first day? Or has thier minds grown accompanied to the taste, lessening its value? We should keep our minds clear and experience every movement as if it were our first.

Hi Travis,
I find them all interesting, just as you. Sometimes, though I find I concentrate on one or the other, just as I do with the foods on my plate.
