…weeds & flowers……


Where I live the dirt is so fertile that weeds and wild things grow rampant.

There is this ugly, tall thing growing furiously out front.  I keep meaning to go out there and pull it up.

Well a funny thing happened, almost overnight, this tall ugly thing had the most beautiful pink flowers blossoming on it.

Wow…I was amazed.  Here I thought thing was merely an ugly weed, when in reality it was a flower waiting to bloom.

Our relationships are like that plant.  There are some that we judge to be merely weeds, but if we give them time, we will see that they are really flowers.

And some that we think are precious flowers are merely no more than stink weed.

Given time and discernment you will able to know which is a flower and which is a weed.

    My first reaction was to rip the weed out and toss it aside. But then I read the rest of your poem and realized what you were trying to say. I guess life in general can be like that weed, shitty on the outside, but with time everything works out.

    Bahh, I really need to stop being so jaded, but its hard not to think like that.

    hola david,

    you see that was my first reaction as well..to rip out wht I thought this ugly tall thing was, that seemed to just grow over night. I was quite surprised that flowers had blossemed. I am glad I was so lazy and did not rip it out.
    The picture above is of the weed/flower growing right out front. And it looks like lots more flowers are going to blossom, in pink my favorite color.

    I can take this as an omen from God that he is telling me although I may think some things or people in my life are weeds they are really gifts if I just allow enough time for the good things to blossom.

      Awesome post. I came over to your blog after you commented on my blog. But isn’t it interesting that you didn’t see the “potential” of that “weed”. (Smile)

    hola sabinspirations,

    thank you for reading my blog. I enjoyed your post as well. I wound up in a bad marriage due to pressue that I was an “old maid”, I kid you not my mother said this at the age of 28.

    And I have also fallen in love with men who had potential.

    The trick is in being able to tell the difference between the man who is just a weed ( and we have all been with one) and knowing which one is going blossom.

    I’m open for any ideas in how to do that?

    What kind of weeds are growing where you live? I may have to come visit. LOL. You are right with your analogy and you are a flower.

    • Sex, Spirit, Soul Mates and Chocolate....Ivonne's Journey Says:

      aww, that is so sweet…do you have a twin brother?

      • radaronelson Says:

        Nope, just me and my sisters.
