Scent

Without a rose

life is often

full of thorns.

Not the kind

you’d like

to cuddle up

to.

If you’re a bee

or even

a butterfly

on a mission

of beauty,

softness &

scent,

you’re not

on your

way to

thorns.

They’re there

helping the

plant survive

somehow

but not

necessarily

what you’re

interested

in.
