The Way A Flower Opens

Photo: (c) Jamie K. Reaser

Have you ever been kissed the way
a flower opens? Those with short lives
must know something of pleasure,
mustn’t they? And beauty, whether
it be their own or they just choose
to find it everywhere. I think that
flowers must kiss bees, and butterflies,
and, yes, the heavenly air as much as
they dare. I won’t say an unkind thing
about that.
