flower reflection by DC Lessoway


Suppose, assume, infer:
a flower in regard to its reflection,
pronounces: “I am beautiful, love me for it.”
Or, are we projecting our egocentric definition that,
beauty, indebted to the beholder, lies at a,
perhaps, erroneous, hollow consideration of
vogue art, fashion, lifestyle.

When, more likely, the flower
considers, then states: “I am a flower.”
