the first time
it rained on these open leaves;
learning to dance
the ruby rose can bloom;
shocking red thorns
It rained a lot the last couple days and I grabbed a few minutes in the morning to take photos. These new leaves have only been open a week or so; this is their very first rain shower. They're babies. By the end of summer they will be old pros, survivors of every chewing creature to ramble by. Today they are newly baptised and bouncing in surprise.
My blog is featured over at Jama Rattigan's alphabet soup blog in her Poetry Potluck series. Go see how nice a table she lays out! I am bowled over at her gracious hospitality.
