Purple Flowers, Central Park 14

Our friend Nancy Eng MacNeill received a liver transplant in May, 2014. As part of her rehabilitation, she trained for a half-marathon with other transplant recipients. Her husband, Bruce joined her. Her children supported her. The half-marathon occurred today.

We could not go to Seattle to watch Nancy and Bruce and Team Transplant. We could not stand and cheer. We could not welcome them at the end of their Half Marathon. So Tricia and I walked in New York. We walked 13.1 miles during the day – not consecutively. But we walked in friendship, in thanksgiving, in hope.

And when we paused in Central Park, we spotted these purple flowers.

Consider signing up to be an organ donor.

Tricolor
purple on the top,
recently rained upon,
they patiently await
the more rain to come
for more rain always comes
in Seattle.

Purple tips,
battered by rain;
some bend,
others stand tall, yet wet.

Battered, stressed
flowers await the moment of bloom.
