Alpinia Purpurata

This flower was a lone bloom sheltered from the sun by palm trees. It is a beauty on the decline and yet it has an elegance that I could not help but notice. Most times when age catches up with us, we forget how we have come so far in our lives with lessons learned through experience, reflection and the bonds of close relationships. We are bent over and weighed down by the happenings in our daily lives and do not realise that as long as there is breath in us, we can look forward to living our lives in the best way that we want to. This flower shows us how.
