Better Than Sacrifice

Img_2724This silent, simple service
a gentle gift of beauty,
to bloom with quiet purpose
despite going unnoticed.

p.s. yes Mateo, I wrote this, too. and i took the picture! ;-)

p.p.s. these beautiful purple flowers are in full-bloom along an empty field near my home--nobody tends them, waters them, weeds them...but still, they bloom.
