Hello, friends. I was planning on only writing one post for today–and it was a poem :) But then, tragedy struck, and I have to share it with you.
Disclaimer: This is no where near the scale of the real tragedies in the world right now. But it did outrage and sadden me in a small way, and as you know my history with this particular thing, I think you can understand my dismay.
Remember the heart bush? Talked about in “The Heart Bush” and “The Heart Bush 2“?
It was beautiful.
It used be a square, then I made it a heart, then it used to look like this:
Then I made it look like this:
It grew and grew. The past month, I kept trimming it in shape, but it was growing amazingly well. I was so excited to share with you how much my metaphor bush was growing! It was beautiful, and every time I looked at it, it was a source of joy.
Then this happened:
Someone hacked into my heart. It’s not a heart anymore. It’s a messed-up triangle. By the way, it used to be higher than the top of the wall behind it. Now, it’s at least a good six inches shorter. Yeah, so sometimes, people can seriously injure your heart, no matter how much growth you’ve been experiencing.
I just hope this isn’t prophetic…..
So, now you know the very sad thing that happened today. I guess I need to put a sign by my metaphor bush, a yellow sign that says “Leave my heart alone!” After all, the world would be better if there was more yellow, right? (allusion to the poem I posted today.)
