The Rose and The Bees

9 Feb

A rose dreamed day and night about bees, but no bee ever landed on her petals. The flower, however, continued to dream. During the long nights, she imagined a heaven full of bees, which flew down to bestow fond kisses on her. By doing this, she was able to last until the next day, when she opened again to the light of the sun.

One night, the moon, who knew of the rose’s loneliness, asked: Aren’t you tired of waiting?’ ‘

Possibly, but I have to keep trying’.

‘Why?’

‘Because if I don’t remain open, I will simply fade away’.

At times when loneliness seems to crush all beauty, the only way to resist is to remain open’

( From: Like the Flownig River by Paul Coelho)
