Poetry Tuesday – sunflowers

sunflowers c/o the sun and her flowers, rupi kaur

I picked today’s poem from a new book by Rupi Kaur at random. By pure coincidence, as if orchestrated by invisible hands of the universe, I couldn’t have possible found anything more apt to follow yesterday’s post on memento mori. On remembering one’s mortality and using that as strength to live a beautiful life.

This could just be the best example yet on getting out of the way and let the universe express itself through you. Enjoy this poem and this day.

from the sun and her flowers
by rupi kaur

despite knowing
they won’t be here for long
they still choose to live
their brightest lives
