Don’t be ashamed to weep; ’tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.
― Brian Jacques, Taggerung
Below is the original photo used to create this image. I found this flowering bush on a sunrise walk around my neighborhood. No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
