mjd - 2014

it is no mere coincidence that the moonflower blossoms at night.

it requires darkness
and the silvery light of the moon 
for the creamy white bloom to open. 

mjd - 2014

there are things that grow in the dark night of the soul
that, quite simply,
would never come to exist in any other way. 

these gifts only arrive in times of struggle and sorrow.

don't miss them because you are focused on the light at the end of the tunnel -

be in the tunnel - 
and find strength in knowing they are there along with you to be discovered.
