A Metaphor

      In our kitchen we have a small orchid. For about a year now, it has been dormant. Actually, I've assumed it was dying. Shoots have turned brown, and some leaves have shriveled. A few times I came close to throwing away the orchid. But I've dutifully kept plucking off the dead bits and keeping the soil moist.

     This morning I noticed three buds about to burst into their full beauty.
