White Flowers - Audrey Honig

you ask,
“but why turn something
into something
less beautiful?”
I answer,
“for beauty is just as much myth
as perfection,
at least as most think of it.
and what is so vital,
yet so often forgotten,
is that as far as our common definition goes,
there are no levels
to beauty.”
