~ Rhododendron ~
A picture of beauty pristine
Of divinity still hidden unseen
Of beauty yet to come
Of a mortal’s desire undone
Of time captured forever
Of moments denied and now never
Of petals basking in sunshine
Of beauty unseen, yet sublime.
I took this picture of a Rhododendron I will not see open in bloom minutes before I left on a trip. Perhaps it will still be in bloom when I return. Hope.
Pictures… they might be considered fragments of eternity captured. Though they don’t truly freeze time, in some ways they do. This flower will still bloom, even while its essence here remains set forever in the fabric of a virtual world.
