fools alchemy : to turn flowers into gold

fools alchemy : to turn flowers into gold

Twinkle twinkle little star - so lightweight that  the diamonds continuously wiggle, and twinkle like little stars.

Diamonds created deep within the earth that twinkle like the heavens.

As above, so below.

The alchemists wanted to transform base metals into gold. My job is to turn flowers into gold.  It is a transmutation of sorts and what I refer to as Fool's Alchemy, an extant subdivision of Mysticism. It is my way to breathe eternity into her ephemeral beauty.
