Of Roses and Humanity
Jamál (Beauty), 19 Bahá (Splendor) 175 B.E. - Sunday, April 8, 2018

"O FRIEND! In the garden of thy heart plant naught but the rose of love, and from the nightingale of affection and desire loosen not thy hold. Treasure the companionship of the righteous and eschew all fellowship with the ungodly."
Baha’u’llah12

Of Roses and Humanity

The beauty of a rose garden
is its variety
of color.

Different hues of roses
grow together in perfect harmony.

The beauty of humanity
is in its diversity.

Come,
let us associate
like the roses in a garden
getting along despite their color differences.

"Blogging Circle of Friends prompt for DAY 1971: April 9, 2018
"May the saddest days of your future,
Be the happiest days of your past."
Chicago Hope
