Wilting, dead or aging flowers and leaves

Life always teaches us lessons.

“A wilted flower says beauty is not permanent

A wilted plant says energy is transient….

The wilted dawn says time has no replacement

A wilted life says soul is just a migrant

A wilted thing is not a waste

It’s a guide that teaches the best

That nothing is persistent”     Raghini AVS
