Grounds for Healing

In Egypt, in a land of few trees, the water growing plants bundled together to become the columns reaching from one sphere of being to another - for example, papyrus, lotus. And the palm told the desert traveler where water was living. Three strands of metal coalesce into the support for a spinning orb of hope. The lotus is rebirth.
