Lush Greenery

“Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest—thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.”
― Beau Taplin
Now that's a new way to view my body. The preacher's always told me it's a temple and John Mayer croons about my body being a wonderland. To all of these I agree, right now, more especially to Beau Taplin's metaphorical connection to a forest which grows back over and over again because there are those times in life when you think you're so completely devastated that there's no recovery, yet a few months or years on you look back to find  how resilient you are.  
Sweet scented orange wildflowers growing on my skirt underneath the lush forest green shirt.
And it's flats for Fall! I'm enthused about that.
