Wake up they say!
See the beauty in our form, our marvelous colors,
The way we open in glory to the sun.
It is your reflection we reveal.
We have been sleeping all winter
In the dark soil
Waiting for the right impulse to emerge
And now is the moment…..
The fullness of our flowering.
Soon our petals will wrinkle,
Our heads will bow and
We will return once again to the soil.
So don’t let this moment pass,
Wake up! Wake up!
For any moment you too will wrinkle and bend
Wake up and recognize the Beauty That YOU ARE!
