Prompt – The Daily Post/Flashtalk

Today’s WordPress Daily Prompt: Flash Talk – You’re about to enter a room full of strangers, where you will have exactly four minutes to tell a story that would convey who you really are. What’s your story?

If I had only four minutes to explain myself I would use these pictures of my roses. In yesterday’s blog post I posted a photograph of utter simplicity, vased roses on a tabletop.


Today’s Photograph of Roses in Morning Light




Today, the morning sun slanted through my window and threw stunning light upon the arrangement. “Voila!'” As if by magic the illumination exposed shadows and brightness. The different nuances and aspects of the roses are so indicative of the different depths within me. Not so simple at all, for hidden within the grand design of the petals and stem is strength and fragility, softness and prickliness.

Velvet Steel

My sister once said I am like “Velvet Steel.” Wow! That wouldn’t even take four minutes to say…and it is exactly what I am.

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words. I thought I said “Velvet Steel.” Will have to check my post again. Violet Steel, could be changed to Violette Steel…could be the name of a character in a book. Would it belong to you or to me I wonder??? Anyway, I think it is descriptive…Velvet Steel. I will have to check back on my post and see…you never know I might have written Violet Steel. Do I sound confused…at the moment I am just that. The more I write the less the meaning. Anyway, Velvet steel is what my sister says my arm feels like…it also fits my personality, soft on the outside, steel underneath. Thanks so much again for taking the time to visit the blog and commenting. It is so appreciated. 🙂
