Pity the Flowers…

Pity the flowers in the corners of formal gardens.SONY DSC

They look as if they fear the police.

But such goodness is theirs that they bloom just the same

and they wear the same ancient smile

they wore before the first look of that first man

who, seeing them emerge, touched them lightly

to see if they could talk.

~ Fernando Pessoa
