WE’RE LITTLE FLOWERS

We are little flowers that are not seen,
we don’t have sparkling makeup,
gorgeous dresses.
We are simple flowers,
little souls in the midst of life.
Tiny breaths of a moment of infinity.
We are small flowers that grow asking for nothing.
It is enough for us to have the sky above and the earth below us.
Have you ever stopped to observe the wildflowers? Have you ever reflected on the beauty of colors, their shades which not even the most daring painter would be able to reproduce? In their apparent simplicity, wildflowers hide a great pride, a strength and a determination that leads them to stand up among others without anyone having asked for it, without anyone having sown, watered, wanted them. I admire them for their tender beauty, their colors and their spontaneity. Simple and yet each of them to see well is perfect and wonderful in his being. Sometimes I feel like wildflowers, one among many, simple, but with that simplicity that hides a strength that only those who want to look beyond appearances can find. Fair and modest like wildflowers. Shy yet sure of her own worth like wildflowers.
Have you ever appreciated the beauty of a wild flower? I love them. They don’t have a well-kept garden where they can show off their beauty. They have no loving hands that take care of them. They don’t have a long life to be admired. They grow in inaccessible places and bend to the elements of time. But they are tenacious, bold. And on their slender stem they will blossom again in spite of those who do not find them beautiful and those who are unable to appreciate their scent. Isn’t that a nice way to describe women? Women who, like a wildflower, always show everyone the strength to be reborn after one or a thousand difficulties.

    So, Fairy Queen, are you aware that what inspired you is the same ancient wisdom written down thousands of years ago?
    “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.” – Jesus (Matthew 6:28-29) He’s speaking to you. Keep listening. Keep blooming. 🙂🌻

      Yes, I know this text of Matthew, in fact at times I have thought about this human situation, about how we all struggle to look around us for what we already have within us. Sometimes the wardrobes fill up with things but hearts remain empty. We humans had it all, we had a beautiful world and we destroyed it. Sometimes I doubt that being human is really a good thing. I feel like a tiny flower, I am among the rocks, I am always in danger of being crushed, yet I am here, tiny and fragile, and I remain looking at the rocks that overlook me. But rocks are minerals and I have a beating heart.
