Summer rose wakens,

spiral-petaled, snail shell curled,

tender as the dawn

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. A rosebud isn’t fragile, it’s designed that way, to open little by little until it forms a perfect rose. It doesn’t last long, but it’s beautiful while it does, and nobody stomps on it. I’m sorry you feel as though something’s waiting to drop on you. I don’t know you, but I wish you well 🙂

  1. ‘Tender as the dawn’.. So captivates everything even if momentarily.. Nice playing with words..
