Beauty in the weeds

I guess this is just a weed, but there's something pretty about its arching stems. What I see is a plant at the end of its season, dried up and brittle, against a lovely backdrop of sky. What I think is that it's important to look; beauty is all around us, even in the things we might normally glance over without seeing, even in the weeds.

Stretching his hand out

to catch the stars,

he forgets the flowers

at his feet.

– Jeremy Bentham
