Photo Meditations - The Beauty of the Rose - Short Story

Updated: Nov 10, 2021

In the days when plants were first starting to bloom, each flower was given the choice of whether to grow with Thorns or not

The Daffodils, Daisies, Lilies, and Lavender all refused.

Saying "Absolutely not! We can't have something as ugly as a Thorn ruining our beauty! Those things are horrible!"

But the Rose was different

Her compassion meant that she saw the deeper essence in all life on this earth. Not just in those who looked pretty on the surface

And so, of all the plants, she was the first to take the Thorn into her arms. And say

"Come. Hold on to me. We can bloom brighter together"



Thus the Rose became the most beautiful flower in the world

For her body

But, more so, for her spirit
