Wednesday Vignette: Rudbeckia

August 17, 2016 garden 038


“From a bud of the evening

a flower opens its petal in the dawn.

The world sees the bud of the last night

smiling with nectar on its lips.

No one observed the diligence

that was needed

for the opening of each petal.”

the rest of us just get up and go to work.”
