The Carnation

The Carnation

Once upon a time a seed was planted gently in the Earth's soil with love. In it's beak was an olive branch, the gardener was a graceful dove. Where did it come from? The only explanation was from the heavens above.
As the sapling grew it shared all of its joy and caring with all willing to be a receiver. “Life is amazing” it would tell other flowers whom had doubt, turning them into believers. It blossomed into a beautiful Carnation, only spoke the truth never a deceiver.
After many years of bliss in creating two of her own Carnations whom created three of their own little Carnations, she received a call on the on the 22nd day of the month of November of the year 2018 from Heaven's Garden. The Carnation, a lovely blossom floated up and through The Pearly Gates as the world at that very moment it did darken. Then the darkened world was inundated with the Carnation's gilded light surrounding it's every margin.
The Carnation taught us all to be more faithful. For all as a guardian angel in the Carnation we were gainful. Like many, to have met and spent time with such a unique Carnation I am grateful…
