Broken before its time, a lonely flower dangles from a twisted stem. The little guy deserves, at least, poetic word, a poem or a whole sonnet. Perhaps one day I’ll write that poem, but for now the photo is his ode.
Update, despite this little flower’s bent and broken stem, the bloom did not fade. Even though the little bloom’s world was turned upside down, it persisted and continued living about the same length of time as the other flowers. It was a lesson in perseverance.
