What is this in the place where flowers bloom and dahlias wait their turn?
A weed perchance, its leaves an oversized green?
It must come out, but wait, there is something hiding there,
something I have not seen before.
I lift its head and experience a sense of familiarity.
I look and think, and then I know. It is the same image as in one of my favorite Georgia O’Keeffe series called Jack-in-the-Pulpit which she painted in the early 1930’s.
Do you think she saw what I am seeing?
Did she stumble upon it by accident?
Did she know what surprise this big leafed plant held in secret?
Oh, how she captured this hidden wonder and made it come alive for all those who may never see.
