Nymphaea, Texas Dawn water lily (I think)

"Unflold" Marie Digby :music: [link]
These hands that I hold behind my back
Are bound and broken by my own doing
And I can't feel anything anymore
I need a touch to remind me,
I'm still real, oh no

And I don't wanna go on living
Being so afraid of showing
Someone else my imperfections
Even though my feet are trembling
And every word I say comes stumbling I will bare it all,
Watch me unfold, unfold, unfold Unfold, unfold, unfold

My soul, it's dying to be freed
See I can't live the rest of my life so guarded
It's dying to be freed, it's up to me to choose
What kind of life I lead



This is one of the best things I have ever shot. In my opinion. :)

umm...somewhere in central Michigan, USA

That's a great shot... I especially like the colours. The whole composition seems very peaceful, which suits the title well. :)

Thanks, Chris. I appreciate your comment very much. It is lovely.
The title is the translation of what a water lily means in the language of flowers. ;)

I'm not really sure what the language of flowers is... It's not something I've heard of. I'll have to look it up at some point. :iconflowerplz::paranoid:

And no need to fear the flowers, my friend. (hehhee...alliteration. :D)
Thanks for the smile, Chris.

Thanks for the link - it was quite interesting to read. I'll have to think twice before I send someone a lettuce in the post, now. :hmm:
