This isn’t a flower to pick, kill, and take home to a dish.
This flower deserves you, it deserves your energy.
Paint it, sing to it, whisper to it, love it, but never take it as your own.
Don’t drain its’ life slowly, watching the delicate wilting petals turn brown, and slip away.
Visit this flower every day, when you leave, trust that no one else has picked it, even then, there are many more flowers waiting for your love.
