Roses of Life
This is for Twilight and Mystic Rose, who obviously love roses. Twilight has been asking me to post the pic of my roses.
From bottom to top is a progression from all the endless possibilities and potential every living thing starts with, to the full blossom, and then just a minute past its peak until it's all downhill decay from there.
The first stage fascinates and captivates me! Your whole story is encapsulated in that bud and it is yet to unfold and reveal what is in store for you. It's like the feeling I get when I look into a young child's face or when you look wistfully at a picture of yourself as a kid, a time where one is yet relatively unmarked by life's events. A pure innocence of what lies ahead stares back at you..... and there are times when you just want to jump into the picture to re-capture the lively and carefree spirit, and simplicity of youth.
Perhaps at times,we all want to rewind the tape a little and become safely encased once again, waiting for our moment to emerge into a slightly different rose.
