Self blessing

File:The flower buds.jpg

All of us, from time to time, doubt our inner goodness and beauty. We have to rediscover it within or be reminded by others that it lies there: 

Sometimes it is necessary

to reteach a thing its loveliness, 

to put a hand on its brow 

of the flower

and retell it in words and in touch 

it is lovely

until it flowers again from within

of self-blessing.
