The bud stands for all things,

“ The bud
stands for all things,
even for those things that don’t
For everything flowers,
From within,
Of self-blessing;
Though sometimes it is necessary
To reteach a thing its loveliness,
To put a hand on its brow
Of the flower
And retell it in words and in touch
It is lovely
Until it flowers again from within, 
Of self-blessing….”

~ Galway Kinnell
