My friend Jessica posted a beautiful poem this evening and I wanted to share it with you guys. Now one would usually just reblog something like this… but see, Jess and I, we like to do things the hard way. So I have copied her entire post and just pasted it below.
Why, you may ask?
Because we cannot find the reblog button on her site. The button has decided to play a game of hide and seek. After some further tinkering, we (and by we, I actually mean her) will figure it out. She’s a smart cookie that way.
In the mean time….
Hope you had a great weekend.
By Jessica Scott
Life is gone, the flower has bloomed and faded,
is withered brown, and drying
on the stalk. Winter has sent it to its rest.
There is no spring coming to breathe new life into it.
But the seeds the flower created, hope in miniature,
They hold the promise of a brighter future,
Not for the one that died,
But for those who come after.

Thank you Jessica for allowing me to share.
