Dry grasses wave across prairie lands, and to some they are drying and dead. Others see a forethought to potential.



There was a time not so long ago when I stood tall, but bent; drying without a fight; willingly succumbing to the human drought and embracing a future as a fire starting weed.

Yet I say ... there is potential in every withering sward. Else I wouldn't have such a lovely photograph, non?



You may look in the mirror this morning and see nothing particularly significant - perhaps you are suffocating, perhaps you are bitter, perhaps angry, outraged or discouraged. Come and I shall catch your beauty with the lens of my heart. Then I will turn the viewer toward you and let you see what I do.

You shall be surprised!

Just what I needed. I was feeling a little dryed and worn out this morning. Your post reminded me it's really not that bad.

Allison, I like your words "there is potential in every withering sward". It is true and goes very well with your beautiful pictures of withering plants.

Each dying, withered flower is the carrier of millions of seeds for producing beautiful new blooms in the next season! Great post!

As much as I feel like this I don't think I will look as beautiful as that sunflower. It's awesome.

"Come and I shall catch your beauty with the lens of my heart." What a gifted writer you are! I will carry this post in my heart and mind for quite a while, I think. :-)

Love you,
