Like flowers we can, and need to, bloom from the inside out.
Yet it takes takes some good ingredients:
love (energy) from the sun (Father Sky)
food from Mother Earth
shelter from those who would trample on us
to sway with the breezes
to breathe in nature's splendor
Tender loving care from ourselves foremost, and others who see our soul and wish that beauty to reveal itself.
Not those who would seek to pluck us from our healthy vine, admire our beauty for a second and proceed to pluck our petals out one by one.
