The Blue Flower

Literature, Nature, Transcendence

Welcome to The Blue Flower!  The Blue Flower is a passion project of contemplative writing, an inspirational blog where I reflect on and synthesize observations, ideas, and experiences that heighten awareness, quicken the imagination, and fuel spiritual curiosity. The blue flower is a literary symbol, originating with German Romanticism, that represents a longing for beauty and the transcendent. You can learn more about the significance of the blue flower as a symbol in my "About" section.


You also can follow The Blue Flower on Twitter and Instagram and join our group on Facebook using the social media icons in the menu.  I am seeking guest submissions of poetry, photography, art, and essays. I’d love to hear from you!  Please reach out!
