This rose reflects human realms as seen through the lens and sensibility of a fragile rose. In my personal fairy tale, the most gentle of species absorbs something of man's firm construction into its own beauty and peace. The boundaries between supple living form and hardened structure are blurred. Yet there is balance in how much can be absorbed.
