Disavowed

striped clematis

We admire her transience,

her fragility –

express wonder at the way her tears

enhance her beauty –

but shun our own.

    Thank you, Melody, for the truth in this!

      I need to learn to embrace my imperfections with a better grace. I have come a long way, but there is a long way to go yet! I think if we owned our weaknesses we wold find a truer strength – especially placing ourselves in the hands of the One who is so strong! Thanks Debbie!

    So true, Melody! I didn’t expect the ending, but beautifully written! Hope all is well!

      You mean I have the power to surprise? 🙂 I am well, thank you! Busily preparing for my students to come back to school later this week and begin a new learning season! Thanks for dropping by.

        Yes, you do! 🙂 I’m back in the classroom, too (online though), taking the last English class required. It’s definitely tougher, so wish me luck. What grade do you teach? Hope you have a great year with cooperative students! 🙂

        I teach a split class of Grade 1 and 2. Good luck to you!
