Flowers that bloom in an unexpected place

Yellow RibbonCommunity Art Exhibition 2008
Prison Art
by people seeking a second chance
imprisoned by their deeds
set free by their quests
to make good when they are out
I read about this exhibition by prison inmates
and I went to take a look today
I am touched by their talents, their voices
and their struggles within themselves
and their willingness to turn over a new leaf
supported by the Yellow Ribbon Project
and all the people who believe in them.

There were many beautiful paintings and art pieces at the exhibition and on the website of the Yellow Ribbon Project. I have selected only those on flowers for this blog. For people who have lost their way in life, being able to see flowers in this light must be an indication that they have not lost hope.
