Wild (Round) Dance of the Roses

Have you ever noticed that the inside of many flowers is typically round? I am thinking about sunflowers, tulips, daisies, poppies – their shape is defined by layers of roundness. The round shape forms a circle; a circle represents the archetype of the Number One. One is complete in itself. One is whole. One makes a statement all by itself.

I started out with this picture of two roses adorning a prolific hedge sprawling along someone’s fence:

Two pink roses

Playing with the image, the rose’s circle shape begins to dance its very own wild rhythm:

Have you danced with a flower today?
