Rising Bloom

IMG_4928.jpg

Self-forgiveness

is the pure and delicate bloom

that once again opens

after the storm,

after the battering

of the downpour

and the damage

from the winds,

after near-drowning

from the relentless rain,

the flower,

head bowed in disgrace

and pain,

summons up the strength

to peek its petal open,

wondering if the sun

has gone

forever,

but a ray

makes its way

to flower’s cheek,

dries the drops

and warms

the air,

giving flower the courage

to raise her head,

and sun and flower

make amends,

leading flower to forgive

herself,

and a fresh new day

begins.
