The Rosette

Photobucket

I love the rosette form, whether it is a rose or not--and it need not be.

It may be a water lily,

or an artichoke,

an Agave

or an Aeonium,
Photobucket

or an Echeveria.

The rosette form is a calm symmetry, a mandala of order.  It's serene and formal, the antithesis of chaos:  the rosette form is everything modern life is...not.  The rest of my life is confusion, uncertainty, incompleteness, failure, dissatisfaction.

A perfect rosette grants me a feeling of peace.  Peace to you, dear readers.  Take a deep, deep breath.
