Weed, Cure, Toy, or Flower?

“I was a dandelion puff…Some saw the beauty in me and stooped quietly to admire my innocence. Others saw the potential of what I could do for them, so they uprooted me, seeking to shape me around their needs. They blew at my head, scattering my hair from the roots, changing me to suit them. Yet still others saw me as something that was unworthy and needed to be erased.”

And Out Tiptoe the Flowers!

“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”

Welcome to My Floral Paths

“Gardens and flowers have a way of bringing people together, drawing them from their homes.”

Just Look

“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”

I Die to Let You Go

When you leave,

weary of me,

without a word I shall gently let you go.

 

From Mt. Yak

in Yongbyon

I shall gather armfuls of azaleas

and scatter them on your way.

 

Step by step

on the flowers placed before you

tread lightly, softly as you go.

 

When you leave

weary of me,

though I die, I’ll not let one tear fall.

–Kim Sowol

Flowery Dialogue. . . Literally

The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.

–Auguste Rodin
