Small Reminders of Life's Beauty


As the cold rain pours,
a bloom rises like the sun
on the lotus path.

What are the things that remind you of life's beauty?

The morning sunrise & the evening sunset ...
He reminds me every single day that life is beautiful, despite what may occur during the day.

Happy PS weekend.

I love this flower so much. You see a lot of them in Hawaii. Are they lotus? Beautiful words and beautiful photo.

Beautiful flower, beautiful haiku. What reminds me of life's beauty? Many things, I can't name just one as they change from moment to moment. I must admit though, I have to look for them in every moment as well.

Peace

Your lotus greets the day - she is liberated.

Carved into the morning
