This Above All

Follow your own truth
The cereus blooms at night
Shines without the sun

nice...did not know this...i guess there are a could flowers that bloom at night...i like how that plays against your opening line....

How beautiful..lovely..

Just another thought..there must be something in the Night that supports it...and therefore..seeking support doesn't mean one is not true to oneself..

I've always wanted to witness moon flowers but haven't been able ... I love the idea the garden blooming at night. If we love within - we would see our moon garden of truth for ourselves. Nicely done!

After almost nine years on the evening shift, I now tend to bloom at night, too! (grin)
