Purple flowers, Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations


They appeared.I don’t want to try to say when.
I noticed them today.
I know not the source.
In time, they will fade and disappear.
For now,
their beauty graces the office,
and I give thanks.

Purple flowers, Giant’s Causeway

Giant's Causeway. May 2, 2012


Awed by nature’s force and power
that threw up and cooled
columns of wonder,
I found time to be equally awed
by a more delicate, transient beauty.

X is for Xeric


“characterized by, relating to, or requiring only a small amount of moisture

<a xeric habitat> <a xeric plant>”


I simply recognized its beauty.

Tricia and Eric helped me learn that the word xeric can describe that beauty.
