Running from the Rain?

We often prevent our own flowering by running from the rain, or by moving so fast that our roots never have time to go down deep enough into substance, or by refusing to sit still in the light. I have done all three, but am an expert at running from the rain.

It takes so little for me to become discouraged with, and complain about, the rain; the inconvenience, discomfort, or the unexpected pain that is necessary for my flowering.

We can live without flowering, but oh, what we will miss…and what the world will miss.only species on earth














The stem is a marvel in itself, but the flower is breathtaking.
