yellow sorrow

i was walking my dog one day when i saw this really beautiful plant. it was just small but its flowers was what got my attention. it was yellow.

i just stared at it because it mesmerized me. then i realized that the day after today would have been the birthday of the former president Corazon Aquino.

i was overcome with grief that i wanted so much to get the flower, but i realized that such a beauty should be allowed to live and bloom until the day it shall wither.
