Yay! The Rose Survived

Yay! The Rose Survived

(…in continuation with my post – Snow & Rose: Yesterday & Today)

………………………………………………

The usual life: The rose was a little uncomfortable that day, as if its intuition was trying to tell something, something full of coldness. But it have always known to be strong, content and happy, so it just kept calm and soaked the beauty of the mountains and smiled. And the others who looked at it also smiled with the rose. Smile is infectious :)

But then very soon, the situations got worse making the rose tremble and feel that soon it might no more be a part of this plant which have been its home since it remembers. It was hard to cope but then the rose decided to just let it be. The only feeling left was “hope”. The rose kept its hope alive.

The rose endured the unexpected and difficult situation it was in, through day and night, and kept praying for more strength. And then when it was least expecting it, its prayers got answered, as unexpectedly as the snow had arrived. It eventually got the sunshine. The rose smiled more than ever. Cheerfully it looked around: the nature was applauding it for the strength it had shown, showering it with its beauty and warm feelings. The rose had got few bruises and wounds, but it didn’t matter much, since it had survived: It was alive!

Here, have a look :)  Continue reading

Snow & Rose – Yesterday and Today

Yay! It finally snowed here! I woke up to snowfall in the morning. It was unbelievable! Unbelievable? Well, according to the native people here, this place is not high enough to get snowfall and they haven’t experienced it as long as they can remember. But today, it was a new day. My hope was forming into a reality over the night. Hehehe. ;)

I experienced it fully. The snow flakes were falling with the little blue morning light in the background. And if you have read my yesterday’s post, you would know how much surprising it would have been for me. It was just wonderful, exciting, over-joyous! :)

So here are two pictures of a rose (just one rose in the neighborhood, just one!), one which I took yesterday with the snow up in the mountains in the background and one with the snow, well, on the rose itself! :D Hope you enjoy.

:)

I had fun clicking this one in the snow today. I almost slipped. Thank goodness, I didn’t.

Stay warm!

It’s extremely cold here now. I will definitely share more photos.

:)

A Rose is a Rose

What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet…
(William Shakespeare)

When your heart opens up tears come, it’s natural. Let it be. Scriptures say that tears of love are so precious that even angels run to collect them. Tears of love and gratitude make our life rich and fulfilled. Just be happy and keep your heart clean and soft, just like a rose.

Wish you a beautiful and lovely time ahead! :)

The Rose – by Paulo Coelho

A rose longed for the company of the bees, but none would come to her.
Even so, the flower was still capable of dreaming. When she felt all alone, she would imagi­ne a garden filled with bees that came to kiss her. And so she managed to resist until the next day, when she opened her petals again.

“Aren’t you tired?” another rose asked her.
“No. I have to go on fighting.”
“Why?”

“Because if I don’t open up, I wither.”
