As It Is

What does it mean - I wondered - that in and amongst a field of colorful is this sweet little bud that caught my eye?

So straight and tall. So soft and strong. I almost don't want it to blossom and bloom. It is so perfectly exquisite - just as it is.

I couldn't help but be reminded. Of life's stages and phases - and how each and every one is whole and complete. Of the seasons - and about the beauty each carries within.

I couldn't help but imagine - where this little gem is in its journey...and who and what - it might someday become.
