More to This

More to This


A beloved pointed out these flowers (“The Pink Dogwood”) because the petals point upward to the sky.


I wonder how they have such strength to go against gravity. Now I see them everywhere. I’ve been taking photos of them because I think the delicate petals are looking up–reaching up, imagining a better world—


They’re asking if there’s more than this, more to this.


I took this photo of them earlier today.


And then I came across a song this afternoon that made me weep. I immediately thought of the pink, not-so-fragile flowers. Close your eyes and listen, the music matches them. It’s the soundtrack for these feisty, hopeful, curious flowers I’d rather call The Wonderers.
