Devotion and Loyalty

The meaning of the Alstroemeria is devotion and loyalty.

“Loyalty and devotion lead to bravery. Bravery leads to the spirit of self-sacrifice. The spirit of self-sacrifice creates trust in the power of love.” ~Morihei Ueshiba

Tulip

One flower at a time, please

 however small the face.

Two flowers are one flower

too many, a distraction.

Three flowers in a vase begin

to be a little noisy

Like cocktail conversation,

everybody talking.

A crowd of flowers is a crowd

of flatters (forgive me).

One flower at a time.  I want

to hear what it is saying.

~ Robert Francis

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” ~ Marie Currie
