“Lightly, lightly, very lightly,
A wind passes very lightly
And goes away, always very lightly.
And I don’t know what I think
And I don’t want to know.”

—Alberto Caeiro (one of Fernando Pessoa’s heteronyms)


A flower is not a flower. It is made only of non-flower elements—sunshine, clouds, time, space, earth, minerals, gardeners, and so on...

A true flower contains the whole universe.

If we return any one of these non-flower elements to its source, there will be no flower...

(Thich Nhat Hanh)
