Meditation Flower


This rose reminds me of a labyrinth, both leading inward and outward from the central light. Our minds will fill happily or not so happily with all manner of thoughts-look to the flowers to bring us back to simplicity. I love roses, hardy beings, well armored, yet completely beautiful and fragile. No either or with a rose, but both.

Lovely rose. I can smell it. Ah.....

and when you look at a rose closely, it is a rather complex little being isn't it? Gotta love them.

not sure about roses, of course they are england's flower. they are almost too sickly sweet for me, too girly, give me the odd bramble or nettle or common weed growing where it ought not to. so glad you're back,love your posts.
