TO THE WITHERING FLOWER

Write letters to yourself.

Seek beauty in every word.

Pick each one carefully like you would pick flowers for a new lover.

With the same lust for a summer romance,

Water them everyday.

Pluck out the weeds.

Watch them grow.

They will bloom if you let them.

They will sweep up sweet aromas.

Brighten your world.

But unlike the vibrant red rose,

Or the fragrant purple orchid,

Certain words will never wither and die.

Certain words have the strength to blossom forever.
