When I look at some flowers like the one in this photo, I see the flower as if it is praying. I see its petals like the arms of a man reaching out into the sky, thanking an Almighty Being for its existence, and giving gratitude also for the blessings of the day. It sometimes stands alone in the darkness, and sometimes I think it even glows like a flickering candle amidst its consuming and contemplative prayer of thanks. Once more, I am in total awe of this magnificent show of power and beauty.

Quand je regarde certaines fleurs comme celle en cette photo, je vois la fleur comme si elle prie. Je vois ses pétales comme les bras d'un homme atteignant dehors dans le ciel, remerciant une puissant étant de son existence, et donnant la gratitude également pour les bénédictions du jour. Il seul se tient parfois dans l'obscurité, et parfois je pense qu'elle rougeoie même comme une bougie clignotante parmi sa consommation et prière contemplative des mercis. Une fois de plus, je suis dans la crainte totale de cette exposition magnifique de puissance et de beauté.
