Flower Aesthetics

Source: des.123rf.com

to pick a flower

is to adorn a table

is to rob a bee

is to pay attention

is to claim possession

is to celebrate life

is to cut life off

is to feast the eyes

is to walk blind to wildness

is to praise

is to deface

is to love

is to lord

over and above all

it is quite a complicated matter.
