Why had all the flowers gone?

From the March 1982 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I was looking for flowers for hours and hours
craving their fragrant perfume.
But I tromped them down into the ground
Smashing their radiant bloom.

Then Love showed me flowers and spent with me hours
Whispering insights to me.
"Take precious time to enjoy what is,
Instead of what seems to be."
