I've crested a hill to see
an expanse before me
Below there is a grand display
of flowers dancing freely:
of peace and beauty
The view takes my breath away
and yet I stop and pause
Each bloom knows not
which part it plays,
for it is just a flower,
in among the others
The flower blooms as is told,
and plays in rhythm with the music
Each delicate flower could not assume,
the collective impact of the whole
This divine display of glory,
a melody full of beauty?
A vantage point like this is rare,
for I am like one bloom
Only seeing my perspective ––
the sky, the dirt, the air
What use IS my growing here?
What purpose does it have?
But, the melody that I hear
combines with sovereign hand
In the end, if each flower chooses
its music will be sustained, and clear
Rising in beauty with the others ––
the symphony of the faithful.

Please note: while I do my best to photograph artwork with true-to-life, it is important to note that watercolor is a difficult medium to capture on camera. At times this may result in slight differences of coloring and contrast. Thanks for your understanding!
