Growing Wild

wild and wonderful


With the Creative Exchange gone, I've been on the market for a Monday linky. I found Mosaic Monday at Little Red house, and this is my first linkup. I used Kim Klassen's storyboard template she gifted us in the Beyond Layers class for the mosaic.

Last week, I discussed wildflowers briefly, so I thought I'd make this mosaic all about the little blossoms I've captured growing wild along the side of the road where I walk each morning. Some are considered weeds, others are planted intentionally in gardens but have escaped the boundaries and are growing wherever they darn well please.

I'll leave you this morning with an oldie but goodie from way back in 1972. I wonder how many of you might remember this song. This one would always seem to queue up in my memory at night when I lay down to sleep after a hard day or during some difficult time when I felt really alone with my burdens. Even though it is sad, it gave me comfort, too.

Wildflower
(Skylark)

She's faced the hardest times
you could imagine
and many times her eyes fought back the tears
and when her youthful world
was about to fall in
each time her slender shoulders
bore the weight of all her fears
and a sorrow no one hears
still rings in midnight silence,
in her ears

Let her cry, for she's a lady
let her dream, for she's a child
let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower,
growing wild

and if by chance I should hold her
let me hold her for a time
but if allowed just one possession
I would pick her from the garden,
to be mine

Be careful how you touch her,
for she'll awaken
and sleep's the only freedom that she knows
and when you walk into her eyes,
you won't believe
the way she's always paying
for a debt she never owes
and a silent wind still blows
that only she can hear and so she goes

Let her cry, for she's a lady
let her dream, for she's a child

let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower,
growing wild
