What is this?
Como se chama isto?
It is the start of a new season, the flower will grow and bloom, then fade and slowly retire till another season follows.
Some plants are prolific and will show up in groups, they love gathering and rejoice in their moments of sunshine and light.
While another will come on its own,
Happy to take its time, before reaching high to take its place in the sun
While all of this is going on somewhere down below on the ground
Many of us are high above in buildings and in other places totally oblivious to the new growth and the life that is happening out of sight of OUR daily lives. But life does go on, flowers do appear, trees branch out, and the man made buildings are softened, shaded and more welcoming. People rejoice, take holidays, bask in the sunshine, swim in the refreshing waters and for a short time, commune with or in nature.
Depending on where we live, the landscapes and geography will vary and be different. We, however, continue to work, play, eat and sleep in our man-made constructions. Seldom do we contemplate the ground. Yes, I include the gardener, why, because the gardener is either focused on his plantings and reaping of the rewards, and the landscaper is trying to control the space, shaping and ripping our what in his/her mind does not belong.
When do we let go of what WE want, to allow the unique life expression of another take form.
