My Emblem of Empowerment …

Toronto-20160628-01279

On my early morning walks by the river … I have passed by this magnificent Thistle a hundred times … at each glance I am inspired by her striking stance … she reminds me of an EMPOWERED WOMAN … standing tall, regal, and strong … her delicate purple flower is her crowning glory … attracting life-sustaining bees … encouraging them to carry out their vital work … her robust stem is boldly covered in sharp pointy thorns … her shield … protecting her and her community from adversity … although she grows skyward … she is firmly grounded with her persevering grip of the land that nourishes her roots … she is considered as a weed … wild and unwanted … in spite of efforts of alienating her body and soul … she continues to flourish … yes my noble Thistle … you are my emblem of empowerment.
