The Rose Garden Series - First Bloom

In the beginning there was one red rose,  unfolding its petals in wax -

Then came the blossoms of silver and stone

and the beautiful portrait of the multifoliate rose between them.

The roses and the stones grew long, elegant stems

and a bloom of darkness on their petals.

The stems curled and the stones were cradled in the hearts of the roses
