Photo Heart Connection ~ July

the sun is hot
the ground parched from lack of rain
even so, this beautiful wildflower
rises from the earth and blooms
it doesn't look withered
it doesn't even look hot
it is delicate, yet strong
fighting against difficulties

an example to me
a reminder
that if I dig deep
I can find strength
to conquer what sometimes
seem impossible and overwhelming

with an inner strength this flower bloomed
with an innter strengh I can conquer my fear
