"The present contains nothing more than the past."
Henri Bergson

Even the lowliest vegetable plants
Bear the most wonderful blooms
White as Easter lilies,
Soft as egret's plumes.

Petals perfectly symmetrical,
Masterfully designed
Bustled about by bumblebees
Considering such a find.

Swaying on leafless green straw stems
Stately as elegant roses 
Snowballs of flowers—onions 
Scented as sweetly as posies.
