Drunk on Her Own Beauty

coral geranium and birdbath

She has sunk to the depths.

The geranium has finally fallen to the depths.

I saw this geranium when she was just a young blossom about two weeks ago, admiring her reflection in the birdbath while all the other geraniums were paying attention to their elders and the garden around them.

The young geranium admires her reflection in the birdbath.

As time went on, this lovely geranium, in her vulnerable angle, was beaten down by life’s cares and several heavy rainstorms which soaked her petals, even as they opened to her full splendor.

She could still redeem herself.
