Flower Power

A World of Beauty

A World of Beauty


Back in the sixties when flower power was at its height I wondered what it actually meant besides being just a signature slogan of a subculture.

Now I know. The power of a flower is to reflect to me the world from whence it comes. A world of light and beauty behind this one where nothing dies. It reminds me from whence I come.

But only if I can truly listen. And I can only do that when the noise of mind is absent.
