From a thorn grows a flower

Hold fast to dreams For when dreams go Life is a barren field Frozen with snow. ~Langston Hughes

The spiny stalks

Grow wild

untamed

The sun beats down

And it appears to wilt

away

to wilt away…

The dirt surrounds

dry and scorched

and then, signs of life

abound

And then one day

surprisingly,

flowers sprout from something

that seemed like nothing,

and from this miracle

a reminder

life never ceases to exist,

and from this comes everything

That from a thorn

a

flower

bloomed
