Dead flowers 2.9

“The rose* is a rose from the time it is a seed to the time it dies. Within it, at all times, it contains its whole potential. It seems to be constantly in the process of change: Yet at each state, at each moment, it is perfectly all right as it is.”

Paulo Coelho

*Coelho didn’t explicitly state that the same holds true for the chrysanthemum, or the little frondy leaves they put in bouquets, but this image is the proof that it’s more than perfectly all right.
