A Rose Is a Rose Is a Rose

I seem to have run in a great circle,
and met myself again
on the starting line.

  1. I posted the following, I thought, and then it disappeared.So here it is again. 😮

    I am drawn to the photo of the white rose and its shadow, and am waiting for the dark rose to pounce. I already have this cartoon running through my head. The dark rose shadow pounces, the white “real” rose swats it away as if it were a mosquito nuisance. This repeats until the dark rose wraps a tentacle around the white rose’s neck and drags it off the page. When the white rose returns to the photo, is has turned gray.

    Love the pairing with the Winterson quote. Is it from Tanglewreck? Thanks!

    1. That’s a nice idea. Though in my mind it wouldn’t be gray, but two-roses-in-one, one part black, one white.
      I think it’s from “Oranges are not the only fruit”, and I confess to only having seen the film but never having read the book.
      Thanks for visiting!

Let me know what you think...
