Intricacy of a simple thing.


Have you ever seen the peony’s bud?
It’s not much more than a tight oval.

But when the bud opens up,

the greatest petals
and carpels
and stigma

And while I inhaled the sweet rose’s scent
I couldn’t help but think that it’s a bit like the mind.

There is so much that the cranium
hides from the world.

You never

  1. Beautiful photos! 🙂
    Intricacy builds up from the very very simple – that flower once consisted of, and arose entirely from, a single cell – just as a human was once a conjunction of just 2 cells.
    Nature is an amazingly simple thing – if we look back far enough 😉
