i stop to smell the roses,

and then i notice the ants are still busy.


then it seemed to me, the bloom was longing for the rosehip –

a former friend, now transformed and full of seed…


does the caterpillar recognize the butterfly as her cousin?


How is it that You always recognize me,

when i am so slow to see You
