The roses Zommie had gotten when she visited home had long since withered, she still held them close but thought about going home to meet her friends and family once again. When she arrived she learned that her mother had passed away. Torn apart inside at learning this Zommie experienced a beautiful funeral for the unicorn who had cared for her so much. And she remembered what she had learned on her adventures, that her mother would always be with her. She was later told that her mother had been very proud that Zommie had achieved her dreams of exploring like no one else before her, and that she loved Zommie deeply. Zommie left feeling sad, but also stronger than before.
Flowers have always been a potent symbol for expressing many deep feelings. For both those who have skills with the tongue and pen, and those who fumble when it comes to vocalizing or writing out their feelings.
