We are good seeds amongst wild weeds.⠀⠀

Small seeds full of potential
In a world rather detrimental.
But we are not the flower that withers away
Come shade of night or drought of day.

We are evergreen,
Tall trees that grow so high
Clouds can’t reach.
& because of this:

There is no wrong season
& no reason for us not to succeed.
We were made to flourish.

The pages turn and seasons change. Even here, there is beauty as this chapter ends.

When all things go to rest, green turns gold in an epic interlude where branches bare and nude repose and come anew.

What colorful hues surrounded by cerulean blue indulge our view.
