The abundance you are looking for is all around you, just be strategic and keep your eye on the prize.

Like a shimmer of petals on the wind.

There’s a headiness as the perfume intoxicates and a pain that lingers when you are pricked. You can have the best time revealing in the beauty or you can get stuck in the thorns.
