Old weathered fence posts, rusted wire and wildflowers hold a special place in my heart. The elements of a world engulfed in the flow of time slowly returns to their raw forms. The steel wire was once black sand rich in iron oxide. The fence posts in their raw from grew from the rich humus to which they return. But lest we think that all is decay and entropy time also brings renewal. The flowers provide a bright spot. All along the old fence the tiny asters bloom. The old rusted wire fence will provide shelter from the groomers blades and support against the high winds as they twist their way up through woven wires. They have also been observing the flow of time. Waiting for the days when rain is gentle and sun is not too hot. The tiny flowers will last late into the season and a few will still bloom throughout the mild winter in my little slice of Appalachia. Honeybees do not hibernate and so the scant blooms will be important as survival food for those days that are warm enough for bees to fly. In my own yard I still had a handful of asters in bloom when the first Spring Beauties and crocus opened. So for me the asters symbolize hope in the promise that God will have what I need when I need it.
Hope is the thought for tonight friends. Be blessed throughout your days.
