Flowers Anonymous
Living with Nature School on Blog

Flowers Anonymous in acrylic by AVR 2015.  

Lady Gertrude Stein was correct after all;
You can't define a flower but by itself;
Move over Linnaeus, Darwin, Mendel;
Science is gathering dust in the shelf.  

Wonder the DNA, the code of heredity;
Prosaic, assuming, devoid of caress.
Neither seen nor measured nor certain
To judge the beauty of a patch of roses.

Why, a flowering weed by the roadside,
Or some lowly vine clinging in the open –
For they mask the unseen to be seen
As a whole new world of a Lost Garden.
