Yesterday I spent the day observing a flower.
The universe showed me:
That the thorn is not meant to protect
The flower from animals
Wanting to eat the rose,
as people may think.

Rather it serves as knowledge,

The sort of knowledge
A hot pot would give,
In a sense of speaking,
But not for certain in that sense.

The knowledge is of prospective:
That the rose is at its most gorgeous
At a certain distance.

The knowledge is of purpose:
That the bee must accomplish
A task, undisturbed.

The knowledge is of memory:
That when you smell, you do not touch.
The mind cannot remember a scent with a prick.

The knowledge is of beauty:
That the prettiest things will bite you,
And in the ultimate reckoning,

That is beautiful.

    1. Thank you Lennon. In that moment with the flower I imagined you. The prick from the thorn was when you kicked me in the balls. I must have said something fresh. You never remember when you are kicked in the sack, and what for.
