Floral Friday :: Flower Quote

(Giant hibiscus)

I honestly can not think of a flower quote beside my favourite flower one, which is what you see branded on this photo. It's actually an excerpt from a S.Korean poem i once heard while watching a Korea drama.

It really makes me think and gives me a sense of fortitude at times of insecurity. It reminds me that the simple things that seem effortless in their success go through countless acts of stress and pressure, only we never hear about it, we only see the resulting beauty of hard work.

I know better than many that just because a person is not complaining does not mean that they are not hurting, not struggling, not hanging on with an unsure grip. Some fights are silent, that doesn't make them less aggressive.

Are there any poems that you find solace in the times when you are unsure?  I'd really love to read them.

You can check out the entire short poem here.
Peace. Love. Fight.

  1. Beautiful, beautiful post.
    LOVE that poem - thank you.

    One poem I came across the other day which shook my world:

    'Sometimes I do' from Rumi

    In your light I learn how to love.
    In your beauty, how to make poems.

    You dance inside my chest,
    where none sees you

    but sometimes I do
    and that light becomes this art.
