The Tale of The Flowers.

Muna’s  Flower Garden

Muna’s vision of her grandmother’s lessons of Natures magic faded as she found herself once again within the field of her dreams.

Muna found she was now walking towards a huge tree which outlined the horizon which was in the haze of the bright light which seemed to penetrate all and everything around her.

She looked down at the flowers they too seemed to shine their brilliance; she felt such love pouring out from all the beautiful varieties she saw.  It was as if the flowers were all speaking to her as she could feel each one as she walked through them as they showed her that love was within every living thing.

She bent down to touch  one of the many  small daisy like flowers that lined this beautiful meadow she found herself walking in, still bare foot she could feel the grasses beneath her feet and the warmth of the earth, as the love from this place oozed through the soles of her feet.

 As she touched the flower she noticed too how her hands glistened with the same luminescence which the flowers and grasses exuded, like millions of glistening dewdrops upon her skin. The moment Muna touched the flower it was as if she instantly knew the thoughts of every flower as if they had somehow become one and Muna could read the flowers thoughts..

“ Please pick me, you won’t harm me, Please pick me” she looked at its perfect bloom and looked deep into its centre as she studied the stamens and saw how delicate and intricate was its construction with each petal perfectly formed. She turned to look at the flower next to it and she reached to touch its petals which were a delicate shade of pink and again she was aware again of the flowers thoughts wanting to be picked.

Memories of Aponi her Grandmother came back to Muna, as she heard within her mind her beloved Grandmother’s voice saying, “ Take nothing your do not need girl, nature gives us everything, we only take that which we need” she could see her Grandmother as she had been on that day as they had so often gone into the woods together collecting for her store cupboard. Bending over the fungi, and picking the mushrooms and blackberries, digging deep in the soil for the root herbs.  “ Never waste a Life, For remember Muna, all things are living, even the rocks, so only take that which you need”..

Looking at the Flower now, Muna touched it gently and held it to her cheek and she smiled at the memory… Thanking it silently within her mind for giving its beauty for her to share..

It was then as she saw as if by magic, all the flowers bow in unison within the field as if in acknowledgement to her thought.. She smelt the heady fragrance of the flowers as they gave off their beautiful perfume… She closed her eyes to the brightness of the place and she sat for a moment within the blooms as their perfume made her dizzy. She held the flower close to her face it was as if it whispered in her ear…

And so the Tale of the Flowers tumbled into her mind as the flowers spoke to her..

 So as she closed her eyes Muna was told the Story of the Flowers..

She was told why the flowers came to Earth… She was told that Earth was such a drab place before the plant life came, but they were created to bring colour and Joy…

“Our purpose” said the flower “is to heal and give love, and to open your hearts to the beauty and splendour of all life and to give it colour and fragrance. We give our lives up freely for our purpose is to bloom and die, giving love to those who pick us. For upon the Earth the moment we are plucked we return to the source of all light, this field we now reside in”.

Muna looked up at all the wonderful flowers and saw the many colours and varieties that surrounded her, she sat and listened intently.

“We are with you all your lives, you turn to us for many reasons and many occasions, we come at your birth and celebrate your arrival upon the Earth Mother. We come with your first love within the petals of your first red rose. We celebrate in your birthdays and anniversaries, and we come when you just need a smile to cheer your day. We just love to populate your gardens and parks and when it’s time for your last journey we come to brighten up your sad hearts as we bring you to our field of remembrance. We come to you with every thought your love ones bring.”

“We flower in your Summer, But our joy is in your Spring

 We are ever present, for our love we always bring

And even in your winter we bloom amid the snow

For flowers are part of every living thing you know”

Muna smiled as she let go of the flower, gently touching its delicate form, she said thank you for all the times she was given their gifts as they sacrificed their end of their Earth life as they were plucked and so died. And she remembered the many times she had plucked a flower or received one.

She stood up from her place within the flowers and continued to walk the Summerland in her very own field of dreams, for as she looked around at the flowers, these were the very same she had picked or had been given throughout all her life.

I wrote this tale as part of a story some years ago.. I resurrected it as I read an enchanting story on Meg’s Blog Megdekorne entitled One Hundred Kisses . It made me realise I wanted to post something fanciful .

But as its Spring I wanted to bring a tribute to the Flowers and say thank you for all of their very special Gifts.  As I thank each and every one of you for bringing your Gifts of love to my pages.

Love and Blessings for a Beautiful Happy Week

~Sue~

    What a beautiful story, so natural against the background that we are told never to pick the wild flowers. This is the natural way things should be so perhaps there too many of us now for the natural world to co-exist with us in harmony. I still love their beauty, fragrance however delicate and loving presence, whether indoors, outdoors in my garden or in the wild. Thank you Sue. Love, David

    Absolutely, Positively, Fantabulous! Reminded me of the book, “Heidi” and her first day on the mountain, when she, an enthusiastic 5 year old, delighted such in the wildflowers she picked them and carefully stored them in her apron to carry back to her grandfather to enjoy – and how dismayed she was when she unrolled her apron full of ‘gifts’ for him that night, and viewed the result…. 🙂

      I think sometimes we forget as even I take flowers for granted.. As they give of themselves selflessly.. Always blooming to perfection.. just BEing the best they know how.. We can learn a lot by studying the nature of flowers.. who keep on growing no matter what we plant them in… They strive to survive and bloom even when cut and the buds are tight shut… Still they open and show us their beauty x ❤

      Loved your visit Christy.. Thank you x

    “Our purpose” said the flower “is to heal and give love, and to open your hearts to the beauty and splendour of all life and to give it colour and fragrance” Sue those words had me thinking of the feelings I experience when I see flowers whether they be along the side of the road or in a garden. Flowers do bring love and healing into my life. Lovely story.

      Yes flowers bring all of those qualities, I am pleased to see a trend here now for farmers to leave a field and sow more wild flower seeds.. We do not even give wild flowers the chance to seed down on the grass verges at the side of the roads, But awareness is now much better.. As the insect population is suffering through the lack of wild flowers.. Many thanks for you most welcome visit Lois and I am so pleased you enjoyed x Sue

    I recall this story Sue, and it’s great to see it posted again, the scenario of a field of flowers, and the harmony Muna has with them is beautiful, their relationship is one of Spiritual birth and regrowth.
    Thanks Sue, a pleasure to revisit.

    Some years back I found a wild lady slipper flower in the woods … I knew it would be destroyed soon, because a new fence line had to build … so I dug it out, and transplanted it onto my east side shady flower bed … it’s still there … right beside the wild onion and wild day lily … smiles … Love, cat.

    I am not quite sure,but I think I can remember the beautiful tale of the flowers and I did enjoy it then!Wonderful emotions and touching prose reaching top levels!
    Loved the visual language of the Flowers and the moral.We are so greedy.We desire everything no matter if we need it or not … Earth might be generous,but its gifts serve different purposes that we have to respect … I won’t write the story of my life,I simply leave you with my heart full of gentle feelings and admiration for your talent and your rich inner world! Enjoy your day my lovely friend;today is Earth Day and I am happy I re-read this so becoming post on this very special day.
