A Rose by Any Other Name – Red Cinquefoil, White Mountains, AZ
20×16 oil on canvas
Inspired by a hike into the White Mountains if Arizona on the South Fork Trail
Sensing water, deep within,
The timbers sway and draw me in.
Walls of green,
And floors of gold,
By chance to see a shade so bold.
“Stay a while,” I hear her say,
The wind beckons, and I obey.
A tint of yellow, a bee is fed,
But a crimson kiss,
Turns my world red.
South Fork Trail, August 2020
