Fray

Azaleas in full bloom.

This is an Azalea bush in full bloom in spring in front of our home.

As the weather warmed up the flowers withered and I could only see their frayed ends.

But wait, someone thought this would make a lovely home.

Mother Robin had made a nest.

In the frayed azalea, blooms life.

Amongst the frayed azalea flowers, life bloomed in a different form.

Welcome to the world, little one!

  1. Such a great reminder that there’s more than one perspective (ours) to the functions and usefulness of things around us. The robin teaches us that there is more to a plant than its physical beauty during a relatively short period of bloom…as there is more to us as we pass the youthful stage of physical beauty….I needed to see this after my own relatively dark take on “fray.” Thank you.
