No simple form conducts its lowing steer

Simple are sublime forms. I feel an affinity with those specific sensations.  Like Shinto, Zen of Japan, it all seemed to be secrets beyond comprehension. Those simple forms are continuously searching for its own origins. That is very attractive. I have been trying to think about the simple things. In my own theory so far, it is important if you take yourself to something great more accessible than you awaken results from the outside, without limiting the image. I still have been ongoing about 'how to be simple' that like Zen seeks enlightenment on a higher plane, they cannot stop.

Venus and Adonis



"Long may they kiss each other, for this cure!


O, never let their crimson liveries wear!

And as they last, their verdure still endure,

The story of Shakespeare's Venus and Adonis derives from Metamorphoses by Publius Ovidius Naso, who is said to be the first poet of imperial Rome in BC. That story is a sad story about the blooming of Adonis-anemone flowers from his shed blood because Adonis went hunting and was torn by a boar horn and lost his life without accepting Venus's advice.




The flower language of red anemones is, '' I will love you''.




It's nice.
