If... unframed

My latest submission for CSI case number 161.  If……

Scheme : all colours used

Evidence : clocks, wet medium metal, something that flies.

Testimony : I chose this photo of a dying rose that I took some time back, there is such beauty even at its last days of glory.

We should celebrate each stage of our lives, its beginning as a bud shy and innocent, its full bud giving out its scent so evocatively, and even when our petals fall a seed is born and so it lives on.

(not very well written I am afraid but thats what it says)

I found these two poems, of which I extracted a verse from each one to portray the thoughts which I am trying to convey.

Do my eyes decieve what once was a rose?
And by that, does it be a rose no longer?
Adam M. Snow

It was a little budding rose
Round like a fairy glove
And shyly did its leave unclose
Hid in their mossy robe
But sweet was the sight and spicy smell
It breathed from its heart invisible

Emily J. Bronte
