Some Encouragement for Seasoning...a Fellow Hubber

 

The soul is a vase that needs

the flowers of love gently

placed in it's depths,

watered often with tears of joy,

and pruned when bad things crop up.

 

The world is a garden

full of arrangements

to be plucked and savored

amidst the weeds that seek

to choke out all hope.

 

And yet even as children,

our first gifts of love

to our mom were dandelions

in a tiny fisted clump

that were deeply cherished.

 

So sometimes even the weeds

of the world can be transformed

if we approach them and

love them like children.

 

But you are a rose, an orchid,

a rare and poetic flower,

seeking another vessel

to sustain you for as

long as you wish to bloom.

 

And that is a good thing,

even though the seperation from

the roots you have always known

can sometimes be painful,

you still plant seeds of thought

in hopes of future blooming.
