Graceful leaves open –

unfolding with perfection –

at the rate of spring.

This macro photo of a flowering kale plant in early spring reveals at least two aspects to it that are particularly striking. The first was the incredible grace of the leaves as they unfold so slowly but dramatically. The second is the perfection of the space between them which is perhaps only partially conveyed in this haiku poem.
