October 09, 2008


I've occasionally found my writing to be inspired by natural features of the world around me, it's structures and intricacies, and in that respect my writing can sometimes tie in quite well with my art; as a result of this, I've decided to post some of the close-detail pictures of plants that I took for my A Level art. Partly it's to do with writing, partly to do with me wanting to add a bit of colour to my blog, and partly me trying to persuade myself that a healthy dose of vanity is good for everyone from time to time ;)

Thorn and Rosebud

The formatting of this blog doesn't seem to like it when you put double spacing, so I've had to use x to indicate where there is supposed to be a blank line.

Thorn and Rosebud

The roses climb

out of time

thorns catching

prickles latching

pushing the bud

pushing the rosebud

desperately pushing at the rosebud

to make you mine.


The thorns climb no more,

and the flower blossoms.
