EVERY PHOTO TELLS A STORY

Were this flower red we would gaze at its redness,
Viewing its colour with wonder and awe.
Were this flower gold we would gaze at its goldness
Describing as 'brilliant' the colour we saw.
But this flower is grey so we notice its pattern,
The curves of the petals, the stripes and the shade,
The jewel at the centre, the sheen and the shimmer!
Colourless, what a design it has made!
