The growing stages of us humans
physically and even more so mentally
keep intriguing me.
At some stage we think
that we are fully grown.
Only to find
that one day
the mirror tells a different story.
We are never fully grown
and I don’t think we ever will be.

It’s like when you want to take one picture
of a rose
and try to determine
the moment the rose is at its most beautiful.

And you wait
and wait
because you see it keeps unfolding
and you just can’t decide
if the most beautiful moment has come.

The most beautiful moment

simply never comes.
We are never fully grown.
There’s beauty and promise in every moment.

I did of this theme.
