Spring Beauty – 18 May 2007

During our walks the past couple of weeks, we spotted a few patches of a beautiful (endangered in some areas) wildflower that we look for every year in early spring. Here’s a poetic tribute I wrote about this wildflower:

Spring Beauty
By Mary T. Hoffman
(Written May 2007)

Spring Beauty: a humble flower,
A pleasure to behold;
Delicate and unassuming,
Blooming on forest floor
Where nature’s treasure lies in store
For those who seek in quiet places
A rare reward.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
