How did the rose ever open its heart and give to this world all of its beauty? It felt the encouragement of Light against its being; otherwise we all remain too frightened.
Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

    • Thank you dear Eddie, for your kind words. I received this flower in a random act of kindness last year, so it’s rather special to me.

    • Thank you πŸ™‚ That rose flower was gifted to me on a special day (that was unknown to the other) and I felt it deserved to see the Light of day again πŸ™‚
