Victoria Amazonica

A lone flower, the only flower I saw today - the Victoria Amazonica. As I said to my daughter earlier, I am a simple person and I aim to free myself from complicated thoughts and complicated situations. Life in a pond is simple. A bud forms, a flower blooms. It has its glory for a short while and then it fades and disappears into its own reflection. A dragonfly zips by, chooses the flower to rest its tired wings on and flies away. Leaves unfurl, live for some time and then die. Fish swim around the flowers and the leaves. They live. They die. A simple life.
