Sometimes…the only touch
 that will provide healing
 is as gentle as 
the petal of a rose flower.

This exquisite flower 
is drawing its core strength
from a resilient, thorn studded, 
weather worn stock.

Rooted deeply into the earth,
it is yielding to sun and moon, 
heat or rain, 
offering its fragrance.
Softness is emerging 
out of deep rootedness,
fragrance is emerging out of 
strength through resilience.
