Ending is Beginning

I walked by this patch of earth the other day, a living, thriving, corner encased by roads and stones. I love the simplicity of this image; these are just flowers coming up to meet the relative warmth of early spring.

On the other hand, the teaching of these flowers is profound. They show us the cycle of life; decomposition and dissolution nourishing life and new growth. Death and birth, birth and death, they need each other to survive.

These flowers remind us that letting certain things go, allowing them to dissolve into the background of our lives, creates the space and the nourishment for new paths to unfold. What does spring hold for you this year?
