fine flowers is a segment that aims to provide a platform that celebrates artistic expressions created by established or up and coming artists.
Wanzi? what is an ‘Artistic expression’- written/audio poetic expressions, art(photography, paintings, drawings), music, short stories, you NAME IT! fine flowers will celebrate it.
As the curator of H.S.Q, I will take it upon myself to search the interwebs for creatives who are killing it in their various niches but as no man is an island, I will need your help. Please e-mail, Hersimplequirks@gmail.com with links or attachments to your work or your friends work, including social media handles. New submissions will be posted every week so please turn your notifications on.
To get the ball rolling, here is one of my favorite poems by Helen Steiner Rice, enjoy.
“This too shall pass”
If I can endure for this minute,
whatever is happening to me,
no matter how heavy my heart is,
or how dark the moment may be =
If I can remain calm and quiet
with all the world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me,
when everyone else seems to doubt me-
If I can but keep on believing
what I know in my heart to be true,
That darkness will fade with the morning
and that this will pass away, too-
Then nothing in life can defeat me
for as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
for I know God will break off all of the chains
that are binding me tight in the darkness
and trying to fill me with fear-
for there is no night without dawning
and I know that my morning is near.
-Helen Steiner Rice
