My favorite, dear Bleeding Heart,
are you happy or do you mourn?
Your bright color smiles,
but your tears look so forlorn.
You show us the beauty we oft overlook,
and elicit a pause when our own hearts are shook.
(My bleeding heart plant is my favorite of all in my yard. It has moved with me a couple times as it was a plant given to me by my Grandma. It is a symbol to me of her very special heart every year when it blooms. It reminds me of the joy and the sorrow of love. It demonstrates the intense and powerful artistry of Mother Nature. I could never create or imagine anything more beautiful.)
Cheers & Hugs,
PS: I love the intricacy of this flower, and this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Intricate.
