Hello. My name is Plumbago Auriculata.
You may know me as Sky Flower.
I was a beauty back in the spring of my life,
sharing my bounty with those in need of food,
a place to call home.
I knew hardship too. I wilted in the heat of summer
and suffered the broken branches of misfortune.
And now, in the sunset of my life
as my outer beauty fades,
I remember. Oh, I remember.
Do you know what beauty is?
