61692 - The flower forest

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

If someone could perceive
the concept of the flower forest
then it would be easier for them to discover
what a paradise of the souls really is.
Because they would pay attention to each flower
that is, to each soul
even if the flower was insignificant
even if the soul was ephemeral
at least for them.
After all, if you do not believe in the soul
how could you believe in its immortality
if you do not comprehend the return
how could realize what
polycyclicity is?
If however you observed each flower
as if it were a tree,
if you observed a tree
as if it were a flower
the world itself would be different
because you would feel its depth.
But who would explain it to you?
Unless you finally observed
a photo with this glance.
