Resolute Rose


Peach Rose--Tanka poetry
Original Photograph and Poetry by Leona J. Atkinson©2014

I saw this beautiful Peach Rose today growing in a somewhat abandoned area of old factories and thought it so odd that such a thing of beauty should be growing so voraciously even though obviously unattended to, but apparently someone, at sometime, had planted it there.
Well, I just had to pull over, climb through the weeds and photograph it and while doing so I was reminded of the quote
“Bloom Where You are Planted”.  🙂
