Not by love, not by song

are we reborn as one,

but by the art of caring.

Caring is the revealer, 

seeing things more clearly

in the mirror of gratitude.

Bougainvilleas: Love/Hate Relationship   Leave a comment

Bougainvia-72Bougainvillea — Image by kenne

We all love the beautiful Bougainvillea blossoms. They add a lot of color to the Tucson landscape. However, maintaining them can be very frustrating. For starters, they have very long thorns, so pruning must be done very carefully, and they will die at the first frost, which can happen easily since we live near a wash allowing the cold night air to drop lower than the surrounding areas.

He loves bougainvilleas
but hated the thorns.
He wanted to know
why all beauty came
with such pain and
was it as answer less as
where eggs came from
when life is all about the eggs,
“because we need the eggs.”
