“A flower is relatively small.
Everyone has many associations with a flower
— the idea of flowers.
You put out your hand to touch the flower
— lean forward to smell it —
maybe touch it with your lips almost without thinking
— or give it to someone to please them.
Still — in a way —
nobody sees a flower — really —
it is so small — we haven’t time —
and to see takes time,
like to have a friend takes time.”
// Georgia O’Keeffe
