Rose Among Thorns©

________________________________________ ______

This is unique:
a rose that unifies people.

Another teamwork between 3 artists of AW:
an international collaboration from across the borders.

CYNTHIA ADAMS - our well known self taught artist and photographer on AW- was very enthusiastic when I asked for her permission to paint her beautiful photograph
"Fire down below!!"
(click on the link to see this beauty.)
I changed her photograph into an impressionistic rose; while painting it grew on me to be more and more mine...

Once more I sent Hassan Pasha -our well known AW digital artist- my finished painting and asked him if he felt like writing some poetry accompanying this small painting yet again.
He just went through some emotional turmoil himself, while writing this moving master piece:


Rose Among Thorns©
S.Hassan Pasha,2007©

I don't know what to do and I don't know what to say
Standing at an abandoned path
Not knowing what is headed my way
This is now and that was then
Times have changed
Wondered why and when
A devil with horns by hours of darkness
This is what they say
A mere rose nestled among thorns
This is what I am through out the day
Many came, stayed and went
Some took the time to inhale my scent My petals wrapped around me,
They hide me from the humankind
to see my soul, it's these petals you unwind
I am looked at from a distance from night till morn
To the world, I am only a rose nestled among thorns


As always,
Love and Light
