Sweet Cherry

A sweet cherry on white linen
So delicate 
               So simple and
                   So Perfect.

I was so glad to find this treasure so I could capture it on film.
The aging leaves hide it's elegance
Taking the brunt of natures' toll on beauty.

Beauty ....found on the inside
So Delicate
         So Simple
                   So Perfect

One could look at it and never tire.
Caressed by life
One also ages but never tires
The strong will to live to see another day
Feel another ray of sunshine upon ones' skin
Touch the velvet of an ebbing wave,
Powerful enough to crush and
 Crumble the strongest stones to sand.
Powerful enough to raise new life
So simply and so perfect
To leave one in utter dismay
Safe, on the inside
Where the brunt
 Of natures' suffering
Is found.
A Lady's Life.
