If a Flower Could Speak

“If a little flower could speak, it seems to me that it would tell us quite simply all that God has done for it, without hiding any of its gifts. It would not, under the pretext of humility, say that it was not pretty, or that it had not a sweet scent, that the sun had withered its petals,or the storm bruised its stem, if it knew that such were not the case.”

― Thérèse de Lisieux, Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux

What Does Light Talk About

“When you recognize her beauty,
the eye applauds,
the heart stands in an ovation,

and the tongue when she is near
is on its best behavior,

it speaks more like light.

What does light talk about?
I asked a plant that once,

It said, “I am not sure,
but it makes me
grow.”

–Thomas Aquinas, “Love Poems from God”, translated by Daniel Ladinsky
