"A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened" –Albert Camus

Modest petals
Enfolding their mystery
Within the white flower's
Heart of deep gold:
Water quakes spider's
Nest in sun-drenched bloom.
Gardener stops, stares,
Torrent struggling against barrier pressed
Over its egress:
Taut thumb. The hose dips,
Soaks roots.
