This is unique:
a rose that unifies people.
Another teamwork between 3 artists of
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
"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
He just went through some emotional turmoil himself, while writing this moving master piece:
Rose Among Thorns©
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
Love and Light
