The Artichoke's Heart

Oh to unknot and unknow myself
like the deep threads of the artichoke's heart
opening into purple flower. Posted by Picasa

I had no idea artichoke flowered!

Artichoke Heart said...

How wonderful . . . felt like it was a little message just for me!

Laurel said...

when you let an artichoke get to that point-- of flowering-- can you still eat it?

Or does the pleasure of the flower mean that the pleasure of the heart is past?

Peter said...

Ah Laurel: yes "the pleasure of the flower means the pleasure of the heart is past." Sounds like a great line for a poem.
