At first glance, you look prickly, spiky, and unappealing. But upon closer inspection, I see the patterns in your coloring, the way the light makes your hairy surface reflective, and how each tip of your petals is frosted in deep brick red. I touch you… you feel like velvet. Thank you for teaching me something new today.
