Bloom Where You Are Planted

A few weeks ago, when I was stopped in traffic, 
I looked left and saw this:
In a rough neighborhood,
in an abandoned lot,
on a graffitied wall.
from an old pipe,
this little pink flower moved me.
With an upcoming relocation on my mind, it's presence reminded me:
It doesn't matter where you are planted.  Just bloom.

  6. This is such a sweet reminder of something we all too often forget. And, you will certainly always bloom, no matter where you're planted.
