The Thorn and the Rose

The Thorn and the Rose. Two creative expressions of the same plant.

While one is literally poignant, the other is elegantly convoluted.

While the elegance of one is temporal, the poignant other seeks permanence.

Indeed, its the thorn which protects the plant while the flower attracts all harm.

Yet, the flower gives the plant its name while the thorn draws disdain.

The Rose, beautiful as she is, carries within her, seeds to new life, despite being destined to die, dry.

Not every Rose may spawn another! She still remains, just as beautiful, as any other.

The Thorn has his place too. Always in attention. Weapons drawn. Ready for action.

Always in attention. Weapons drawn. Ready for action.

Always in attention. Weapons drawn. Ready for action. Sounds boring? It is.

The Rose always takes the centre stage. She swings and sways to every breeze on her way.

Oft hypnotised, a hand reaches out… but gets a finger pricked instead!

Damn! The Thorn. Yes, every Rose has its Thorn :)
