Work

Dehydrated Flower

Flowers, flourish and wither inevitably,
Yet human tries hard in capturing her best moment
Photography, paintings, poetry, fiction and music attempt to solidify time,
Yet the efforts are futile and incomplete at best
Just like some lifeless dried flowers.

Flowers and human are no different,
Mankind strives to capture and perpetuate fleeting moments.
Have we gone too far in pursuing a mere frozen second?
Is this the ultimate purpose — to keep things in a timeless state,
Or to seek the exuberant vitality of life within the sands of time
From birth, growth, ageing to death?
