Each day
as I walk to work,
I look about at the world around me.
Most often I see
dirty streets,
homeless greeting the day,
cars rushing…

I feel
as if this,
this.
is all there is.
then,
I pass this bush,
and on the bush
I see,
a single purple flower,
so beautiful and
striking in the turmoil.
I think,
when I see this flower,
that everything is going to be O.K.

You,
my love,
are the purple flower
in my life.
