I did not have to ask my heart

0177_I did not have to ask my heart

I did not have to ask my heart what it wanted
because of all the desires I have ever known,
just one did I cling to
for it was the essence of all desire:
to know beauty.

~St. John of the Cross, (1542 – 1591)

    • Thank you, Anne. I can’t tell you the name of this rose, because I never read its tag. It was in a public garden, and all I could think of in that moment was how ethereal it looked with sunset streaming through its petals. xo
