Violence in the… (Haiku)

Violence in the heart,
ripping a flower apart;
petals and a stem.

    I hope dear Tara that you are not the flower

    • Doug, I choose a flower because of it’s symbolism to opening, change, and cyclical patterns in the Universe. No matter how angry someone becomes, or holds onto anger, breaking a flower down to all it’s pieces, leaves me to think, ‘anger’ and violence accomplishes nothing, in the moment.

      Karma would be another thought…
      Thank-you,
      Tara

        I find nothing more beautiful and free than wildflowers in the forests and meadows Tara. I am sure there are many beautiful varieties around you. Wishing you peace.
