The Traveller's Dower
"Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks." Plutarch

"Pluck not the wayside flower,
It is the traveller's dower;
A thousand passers-by
Its beauties may espy,
May win a touch of blessing
From Nature's mild caressing.
The sad of heart perceives
A violet under leaves
Like sonic fresh-budding hope;
The daisy on the slope
A spot of sunshine dwells,
And cheerful message tells
Of kind renewing power;
The nodding bluebell's dye
Is drawn from happy sky.
Then spare the wayside flower!
It is the traveller's dower."
by William Allingham

The wildflower that grows in rock is a powerful metaphor for hope and resilience, I wanted to capture the power of fragility, surviving and growing, amidst the force of nature.
