Conception, II of Fortitude Series. By Dewi Dian Reich. May 2021
The second piece in the Fortitude series. The ‘Bunga Kangkung’ is a vegetable flower growing wild in the rice fields near water sources. Its leaves are edible and is a common vegetable in the local diet. Its flowers however, attract no attention.
Fortitude, is a collection of works that explores quiet strength and modest constancy. In this case, the modest courage reflected in our rambling weeds. Their beauty unseen and their strength unrecognised. The second flower in this series, is a budding Bunga Kangkung. From its conception, this flower does not gain admiration.
