"You are my Flower"

The other day, thinking about the word "hana," which means "flower" in Japanese, it brought to mind Gautama on Vulture Peak ... and also an old bluegrass tune, "You are my Flower." The bargain-basement rendition of the song, by Flatt and Scruggs, is so fuzzy and out of tune that it somehow comes around in my mind and touches the heart of things... a kind of amen to the vultures.

And then, associatively somehow, there's "Inspite of Ourselves" by John Prine and Iris Dement.
