To be

vulnerable

is to be

brave.

It sounds lovely

and 

we'd all agree 

that's the way 

to be.

But have you ever wondered how

a rose bud's roots feel

in the chilling chamber

of 

January?

If she's ambitious

she's furious

when her plans to gracefully 

unfurl

shrivel under the demands 

of building up 

resilience.

Is she cold?

Or does she reach down for earth's

dark blanket

to embrace the blush 

that will be the rush of her outrageous reality?

Only time will strike 

at the right moment

of her debut.

 I'm experimenting with Photoshop Layers

and

this year's goal is to submit 

my heART to 

Bella Grace Magazine -

in other words,

a portion of my memoirs

and a maybe a few photos.

What daring goal do you have for 2019?

The First Kiss


from a Minnesota January

is 

slow and still.

However

the ambiance slightly changes

when I decide I'm simply going to




anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord


and illuminate the barren landscape

as I wait

to be embraced by the caress of spring

and the heat 

of summer's passions.

Be kissed by a rose.
