I’ve passed by this creeping vine numerous times but didn’t know it bore flowers. Many of the buds have bloomed except for this one that remained closed. I felt it’s such a waste that it didn’t release itself. Perhaps its time is not up yet.
Or maybe the world will never know the splendour it held within and it just fades away. It’s a terrible thing to just have one chance at life and we never reach our enlightened state.
