Purity comes to nature
A wedding gown for a bride
Not yet tarnished by insect or mold
It faces the sun and cherishes the rain
It perfumes the air
Hoping to attract a pollinator
To pass on its seed.
It is called MOONSTONE a tea rose. It seems to glow with white pearly petals and that are pink edged. It has many blossoms that are held by beautiful green veined leaves. I wandered out on a midsummer’s eve when the moon was high and bright. I saw its blossoms turned toward the light, they seemed to glow in the night and toward the brightness of the moon’s light.
Sometimes we are attracted to beauty. It is the clothing, the physical features, the way someone or something presents itself. I think in nature everything can attract us. Even the lowly fungus can have a beauty all its own. To appreciate this earth one must consider the detail using all our senses, and develop them. The rose has thorns, soft colorful petals, water that drips from its green leaves in the morning dew. Most of all a perfume that you can never forget. It is something you can reflect upon.
