Be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees!

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 its honey to the bee.
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life, And to the flower a 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.

People of Orphalese, be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees!

~ Kahlil Gibran (from The Prophet)

Very well done. The picture is great. However you could have used Khalil's quote with one of your mugshots with the bee or butterfly sitting on a flower.
Keep them coming...great to see you growing with each work :-)
