Jamaican Floral Essence
(Montego Bay, St James, Jamaica)
Photo Contest Entry #19 - Jamaican Floral Essence
Everyday me and my little nephew would take a walk over the green bushy land. The entire surrounding was extremely beautiful. The birds flew high in the sky. The tall thick trees spread out there branches, giving shades to the small creeping creatures. The beetles, bugs and butterflies could be seen everywhere.
But on this very special day, I felt as if something strange was going to happen, something quite unique.
But we continued on our journey and as regularly, we fought through the sharp needle thorns. And as we approached the mango tree, I suddenly saw the most charming, lovely and adorable flower. I was so amazed and delighted, no wonder I felt this way. I knew something was going to happen and it sure did.
What a beautiful flower it was! It was as if it was waiting for me there all along, just like a groom who would wait patiently at the alter for his bride to come.
There were so many green leaves that surrounded this radiant flower and the darkness within the bushes. But I knew now, it had its purpose there and for me as well.
The flower lighted up that small area with its gorgeous purple and white petals. I was so attracted to this plant that I could not stop staring at it.
The impact and power that it had on me, I just wanted to stay there and enjoyed the beauty of it for all eternity. I was there for hours and hours, but now the time had come for me to go.
While I walked slowly away, I turned around several times and looked at it. I just did not want to leave but I had no choice.
Then I stopped and took my final look at this flower, hoping that I would see it the next day and forever more.
I looked up the sky and took a deep breath and walked away with high hopes in my heart that I would see it again someday.
