Unrealistic Desire

Wilting Daffodil  Photography by Meera Rao 

Wilting flowers do not cause suffering;
It is the unrealistic desire 
that flowers not wilt
that causes suffering

Beautiful photo and a profound thought behind it Meera, one of the first lessons to be learned in life, often one of the last learned.
