As I was meandering in the garden,
I saw a flower
it immediately caught my attention.
Never had I seen such a thing so glorious, golden, good natured
Its strong, substantial stem supports itself standing like a warrior in the wind.
The petals are soft and vigorous at the same time;
while the surface is silky and smooth, the colors are vibrant and vivacious
So delicate was the flower that I had to pause at its presence for a brief thought;
Should I pick it to be used as a decoration?
Or just leave it, to be devastated by the storm?
Either way would cause the flower to wither and die.
Being caught between different options,
I chose to let nature take its course – what was produced by nature should be returned to it.
