Sweepy called my attention to the singing new buds.
It may well be my late Mama because it is her birthday!
. . . they seem in a hurry to grow and open up!
The deep magenta petals love the rain!
I held them in my hands and whispered a prayer of thanks!
. . . for her timeless beauty and grace . . .
. . . for her strength, her laughter, her kindness and generosity.
. . . for her independence and creativity and joy!
. . . and for being so much more than just a mother to me and the community, she was a caring friend, a supportive wife, a kind sister and sister-in-law, a woman that inspired passion, raw power, and ever-faithful love and belief that all things will come to pass, and pass graciously and joyfully!
Happy Birthday, Mama!
Wherever you are, you will live forever in my creative spirit until we meet again . . .
