457 Colour the Petalled Traveller

As I pass “my” tree, it is a marvel how its  petal buds can be so intense and vivid. On a second visit with a closer look, one discovered, perhaps very late in life on my part, that these magenta petals would not only unfold to discover their world , but they would get bigger and completely change their form.

I had never noticed how very obvious this is,  but as they grow, that strength of hue which travelled those delicate veins now literally appears to evaporate. In gesture, there is an imprint,  its influence has been felt and the memory will last. Whatever its purpose, Divine Inspiration has now done its work and must away.  Nothing stays forever, but grateful for the visit.
