Plants have an inner being, and separate ways of talking and feeling.
An ear of corn bends in thought.
Tulip, so embarrassed. Pink rose deciding to open a
competing store. A bunch of grapes sits with its feet stuck out.
Narcissus gossiping about iris.
Willow, what do you learn from running water?
Red apple, what has the Friend taught you?
— To be sour.
Peach tree, why so low?
— To let you reach. Look at the poplar, tall but
without fruit or flower.
— Yes, if I had those, I’d be self-absorbed
like you. I gave up self to watch the enlightened ones.
Pomegranate questions quince,
— Why so pale?
— For the pearl you hid inside me.
— How did you discover my secret?
The core of the seen and unseen universes
smiles, but remember, smiles come best from those who weep…
