Abundance of perfection

We marvel at the perfection of a flower 
Whose color, shape, and scent 
Seem magically designed to please 
 Our hungry eyes, and yet 
It’s only one of many, and might easily 
Go unappreciated among the profusion 
Of healthy blossoms on a bush, 
Made invisible by the generous abundance 
Of surrounding blooms. 
Like a lover presenting a single rose 
To a beloved, the photographer plucks 
And shares, but without destroying; 
Leaving the original to be discovered 
 Once again by passers-by.
