The weary blossoms
bow their heads to the rain drops,
welcoming the rest.
The leaves remember
hopeful buds, bursting with life,
eager in the Sun.
These fragile beauties
They’re seasonal hires.
Suffering cut backs,
the greens dig deep to survive

I found your blog after one of my friends shared it with me on Facebook and wanted to run a few things by you. I have a skin care company that I'm working with which I think is right up your alley. Let me know if you have a moment to discuss.
