Scene: Thorns In Beautiful Places


[Begin scene]

Sunlight streams through a window, casting a spotlight on the elegant bouquet…

Long stemmed roses stretch, their soft yellow petals gleaming radiantly in the bright light…

Deep green leaves cluster under the petals, worn almost like a dress…

Thorny stems reach down into a vase, drinking life extending waters so that this beautiful setting might last just a few more days…

Fragrant aromas drift through the air inviting you to lean in close…

Make time to stop and smell the roses.

[End scene]
