Petal empowered, fading

Amaryllis petal see through

Sad to say, but the amaryllis’s lush petals are desiccating, and the cycle of life continues to unfurl.

And the snow is, pfft, liquified.

And I know that a certosa is the Italian term for a Carthusian monastery, which in English is a charterhouse. And the Carthusians are a Roman Catholic order who live like hermits. Their motto, apparently: Stat crux dum volvitur orbis, Latin for “The Cross is steady while the world is turning.”

The world turns, life unfurls—same thing, ¿no?
