Every time I see lilacs I remember these lines from Eliot's poem
"Lilacs out of the dead land,mixing
Memory and desire,stirring
Dull roots with spring rain."
I read this poem when I was about 20,I wasn't reading a lot of poetry but these few lines have stuck with me ever since. Nature and plants has been a theme for so many artists all across the art spectrum and rightfully so,they are here forever,they are going to bloom no matter what. And I love that,my plants don't care about anything, they are all blooming at the moment and making the spring feel a bit better 💜
