Azalea Blossoms

The Azalea Blossoms

Discarded
husks
lie where they have fallen,
brown and withered,
forgotten.

The soft breeze
scatters
the proof of what once was
hard, unyielding,
temporary.

Surprising
traces
of transitions unsuspected;
the hidden disguises
of grace.

Exquisite
beauty
sheltering in safety
until the time
is right.

Uncovered
glory
beyond imagining;
a holy message
in bloom.
