A Gift Of A Rose

Today, I have nothing to give you but this rose:

rose on a tomb

 

Lying down on a tomb,

The Rose, my Love:

Lonely yet lively,

Young yet already left to wither…

Its thorns: Inflicter of pain;

Its petals: meant to soothe.

Sacrificed.

Have a great week, everyone!

An Evil Nymph.

    I was confused at first by this picture, since this looks like volcanic rock and I thought Mauritius was like the Maldives: very flat coral islands. But now I see in my research that it was formed by volcanoes. I guess you learn new things every day. 🙂

    Sad, passionate beautiful. I was hoping for the rose to bloom and find its happiness but in real life we all know that is not always the case. Great writing my friend.
