Looking closely, really closely, at something changes the object. I’ll have a hard time explaining this but essentially what I mean is that things are shape shifters and depend on how you’re feeling at a particular time and what perspective the object presents to you changes the your opinion of it.

I find there’s something enormously powerful about flowers if one takes time to look at them closely.
“Tulips shyly smiling, greet the spring
Tightly closed when at
First we meet
Tulips slowly opening, begin to sing
No longer shy, as days grow longer,
Raising their heads
They begin to flirt
Tulips dressed in many a color
Each floral skirt
Tulips, brazen painted hussies,
Part their bright lips trying to seduce
The busy buzzing bees
Far too bold for dainty tussies
Vibrant Tulip flowers produce
Visions certain to please “
