A Red Remembrance

“Love for the beauty of the soul.
I shall love you always.
When the flower of life has gone,
ever I shall find you.
When all is lost and winter comes,
I shall be your spring time.
And memory fades and wilts then,
I shall always find you….
I shall always find you….”
― Laurel A. Rockefeller,
The Ghosts of the Past

The bromeliads by my front porch are in bloom and they remind me of my grandmother. She would always get so excited when they bloomed; she loved the big red cones of color this particular species puts out. They last only a few days in the Florida heat, but I enjoy every minute they make the path to my door a little brighter. I hope you like the photo.

  1. I like the photo. Bromeliads remind me of my father, who enjoyed raising all kinds of plants. During his unhappy lifespan, bromeliads were one of the few things he loved that loved him back.


  2. The composition of this photo is perfect, as are the densities of color blending and depth-of-field. This is definitely a “wall picture.”
