Poetry: Standing Strong

Spring roses take my breath away. Found a singular rosebud in a picture, and spun a little creativity into it for a digital artwork. Added a Rictameter Verse to weave words and poetry into the picture even more…

One rosebud reaching for a drop of sunshine and blue skies.

hidden beneath
the big green leafs and bright
colorful blossoms, was she, a
strong, small, thorny, rosebud of fleshy pink.
Reaching for a glimpse of yellow
glow and blue skies above.
Rooted deeply.
