This gave me chills.
Gosh that poem gives the bloom so much meaning. Very creative.
Very nice image and poem - isn't it awful how the government over there is trying to spin her death now?
I agree with all the above--the poem is a great partner to the image.
Everything works...the blooming rose and that poem. Powerful stuff! Fabulous take on the theme!
I like the composition of this image.
I like how the poem express so many emotions & imaginary, it's just a shame that freedom is still something so hard to get
I would like to thank everyone who has read and/or commented on my tribute to Neda.I actually wanted to post this on last weeks Inch by Inch for Courage but I wasn't satisfied with it at that point. It wasn't quite "there" yet.I had my doubts with for this weeks but I knew "Bloom" was the perfect home for Neda's tribute.To date this piece has taken my the longest to write, watching the video countless times, reading everything I could possibly find, delving into every detail each little crumb of information...I stuggled with this,deleting line after line and starting again 4 or 5 times...I just wanted to put into the right words the images and the emotions. I hope I have done Neda justice.Peace - Rene
love the ending...beautiful... thanks for sharing, Lady Rene

This written work brings out a totally new meaning to a rose and its bloom. Wow. You really are gifted with putting words to paper.Thank you once again for participating in the weekly INCH by INCH.*hugs*
God bless Neda. What a beautiful tribute. Thank you.
Beautiful and powerful, Rene. Wonderful job.
Yes, we remember Neda. Somehow her beauty made it worse. It shouldn't have, but it did.
A wonderful poem laden with impassioned thoughts of freedom!
Nice - important poem - glad you shared this Friday!
