Joyous Friendship

A yellow rose

To signify

True friendship

Of joyous

Bound.

Sure as

Light shines

Upon the petals

Glory is

Found

Within

A friendship

 Built on

Solid ground.

It is 

Not worth

A pound,

If not

Gowned in

Trust and

Love that

Are proclaimed

Aloud.

So my

Friend,

Of

Joyous bound,

Let’s stick

Together

As the

World goes

’round.

Some days

We feel as if

Life is full

of downs,

But,

Our friendship

Will abound,

Through faith

In each

Other

That

Cannot be

Drowned.

Yellow Roses

A dear friend of mine gave me a yellow rose plant early in the summer.  The plant has flourished despite the heat and lack of rain and has produced many beautiful roses.  Yesterday evening I took advantage of the soft, diffused light to capture the splendid roses. What you see below is a series of images capturing the various stages of a rose in bloom.

The bud and the bloom.

The rose and the opening bud.

The grand opening.

Delicate beauty.

My personal favorite of this series.
