When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: and when I became an adult, I did not really put away all childish things — like poking makahiya leaves and watching them in amused amazement as they close. Can’t resist. Can’t pass a makahiya bush without poking the leaves. It makes me happy.

Makahiya is also known as bashful mimosa; the scientific name is Mimosa pudica.
