A Poem and a Flower

At the bottom of the garden
Something pink caught my eye
And as I approached it - my oh my
Self sown by nature
It bloomed overnight
So in the morning would bring its delight
A frilly pink poppy slowly unfurling
And life still goes on
And the World keeps on turning

Life does indeed go on and Nature couldn't care less about who is in and who is out and politics in general. The world will indeed keep turning and we must focus on the good things like your beautiful poppy. Isn't nature wonderful?

Those frilly poppies are so beautiful.
A reminder to look for the beauty in the world where we can.
