Carmelo Blandino wrote this poem about flowers he paints and inner beauty. I imagine peonies in particular when reading it…a heart as a peony. See what you think…
It takes courage to live a life.
Without courage the flower would not allow itself to stand up and bloom.
We need courage to be attentive to life and to live by its truths.
To remain resolute in keeping the four corners of your life straight regardless of what others say about you.
Without courage the petals wouldn’t open, and then it’s great inner beauty would never be seen or manifest in the physical.
The high vibration of flowers with their radiant color and life, are there to remind us of our true essence,
and of our true potential as humans on earth.
Do you have the courage to live a life of unfoldment and
allow your petals to be seen for their glory, and to be glorious in your courage?
Of course you do, of course you can. By listening to the
personal flower within you. Your heart.
Wishing you beautiful flowers until the next peony season and the “courage” to listen to the flower within you.
