A heart laid bare
Never let me lose the marvel

Last one of this fall


An amazing bit of nature (from my trash-pile roses): another rose bud hidden within a blooming rose / New Jersey / Nov. 2007

“dark in the backyard and at the wall
a white rose last one of this fall
opens its blossom to the night
and closes it at dawn”

~ Nuts for a Black Parrot (Orísky pro cerného papouska) 1980, by Czech poet Jan Skácel



Glad this one opened in daytime.
