Despite what your eyes may tell you,
they are not all the same.
Imagine a garden
filled with one kind of flower,
all exactly alike:
same height,
same circumfrence,
same number of petals,
same stance.
That kind of so-called perfection
wouldn’t look right at all.

This batch of blooms
works together
to create waves of yellow
with an undercurrent
of deep brown and spring green.
Some lean left,
others lean right.
Some droop down,
others stretch to the sky.
Each individual flower
has a part to play,
and it’s all orchestrated
