Brazilian Plume/Today's Flowers # 9

@ mirandablue
Brazilian Plume, Megaskepasma erythrochlamys


Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
The world of the flower, the whole of
the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth
of the blossom:
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.

~ Zenkei Shibayama
