The words in ‘Haiku’: ‘Suspended in its beauty, you are captivated by the vision. The sight of one’s lover, the colours of a sunset, a child’s smile, a sea of Autumn leaves. In that moment we leave our frenetic world, and enter a realm of love. Here lies hope and a resistance.’

The words in ‘Look Up’: ‘Your adornments seduce, Giver of shelter & home, Children entangled in your limbs shed fear, We dream your ripened fruits, Your flesh becomes our learning, You are the lungs of life , A reminder of all that connects us, In you, life can be examined, In your beauty we are less alone.’

Mexico City is sprawling, Aztec remains sit beside the consumption points of modern day capitalism. Against the frenetic activity of the City, life is resilient. Throughout the seasons the cityscape is punctuated by the silent beauty of seductive clusters of flowers – sempasúchil, bougainvillea, coral, jacaranda, sábila. These moments of floral colour resist the grey uniform of the city. In nature the city dwellers find a most wonderful respite and hope is alive.
