Something About a Flower

Out walking again
despite self-driven deadlines,
I discover another
and another
and another small sample
of simple
meets sensual,
of beautiful meets primal. Look.
So much of the natural world calls us
to what’s most
luscious
in us.

I’m working at simply seeing,
at just living
rather than curating night and day
like some interior designer
intent on what’s in the view finder
conforming to… what?
I’m learning to neglect
all my questions
and answers,
sensing
some new
flowering
there.
