Rose in Bloom

January 20, 2009
By Hannah Ruggiero, Seattle, WA

her pale skin
white roses
her hair - red
gold
copper.
She stands
with her back straight
with her chin up.
Proud
shy
beautiful.
So beautiful.
Her curls
a cascade
of red gold copper
against her pale cheeks.
White roses.

There is little more powerful than the laughter of a young girl. There really is nothing more powerful than love.
