To my daughter...

Rose Marie Lowry
April 3rd 2008

Silently a flower blooms
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
The world of the flower, the whole of the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth of the blossom:
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.

- Zenkei Shibayama

I was thinking of your sweet Rose the other day, Kimber. What a beautiful poem to pay tribute to her brief time here. Hugs.

You have your own sadness at this time too, Kimber. What a shame my heart goes out to you and your family. xx
