Taking flower photographs
sometimes feels to me
like eating chocolate.

Both are so enjoyable,
and relatively easy,
and there are endless varieties;
how can you stop?
But it can feel like an indulgence,
and the very qualities that make it so sweet
are what can make it lose its appeal
quite quickly.

But the tulip festival.
The tulip festival!
How can you not indulge a little?
