a Rosebud of our own making

Dormant states, hibernation: the necessary stages that culminate in renewal. It’s been a long time coming. Walking down the street these days, you notice the silhouettes of gnarled and knotted tree tops looking stark and strangely naked against skies that are cheerful blue one moment, foreboding grey the next, and back again. The knots that line the barks will soon transform, as will all the buds in thorny masses that conceal those most vibrant and fragrant of flowers. Always under the surface, a rosebud of our own making.
