I was a rose so near to bloom after a harsh and endless winter, a season so prolonged it seemed Id never feel the suns embrace again. And then it shone so sudden, steady, hot and kissed my withered petals all along their frosted tips. With this bright promise I awoke from my dark dreaming, gratefully unfurling all my hidden summer hues. Yes, I was impatient for that gold atomic kiss, and for awhile blossomed in the sure caress of sunlight, drinking all the welcome heat deep into my hungry heart. Luxuriant, I glowed, vain and unguarded, having quenched all memory of winters blight. But surely as the day melts into midnight, the sun again withdrew to clouded sleep. I, unaccustomed now to grey enshroudment, withered utterly and quickly from the lack. A new year comes, following in steady course the wheel of time; and though the seasons wrong I feel once again the suns caress. Shall I abandon my tight folds for hazy token, soft unfolding to what may be smoke, or keep myself enwrapped as close I can from what may be another bitter blight? Can I withstand the seasons cruel blows? Will I survive a thousand winter snows? 2013 RC deWinter
