This Flower Submits

And now you ask in your heart, "How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?"

Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the Bee to gather honey of the flower,

But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield it's honey to the Bee.

For to the Bee the flower is a fountain of life,

And to the flower the Bee is a messenger of love,

And to both, Bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.

(Kahlil Gibran, pg 73, The Prophet)
