Sanctuary on a Rainy Morning

"A route of evanescence
With a revolving wheel;
A resonance of emerald,
A rush of cochineal;
And every blossom on the bush
Adjusts its tumbled head, -
The mail from Tunis, probably,
An easy morning’s ride."

Emily Dickinson

  1. always beautiful! This afternoon we have some sun, a delightful pause from all this raining...thank you for letting me see this wonderful rose!

  2. There is a tenderness to your photo -- the way the petal laps over the bud . . .

  3. Gorgeous photo, as always, Merisi. The bud resting against the full blossom reminds me of a child resting his head against his mama.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Ilva,
    I hope the sun has returned to Tuscany for good!

    Vicki Lane,
    yes, I agree! :-)

    thank you!
    I felt the same way about the bud and the "mothter" rose, as if seeking comfort or sanctuary.

  5. I have six roses just this color on my desk, as we speak.

  6. So delicate and fresh. Terrific composition.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
