Miss Havisham's Roses

The bouquet was left to dry in its perfection. A downy film of dust covers remembered white petals, so fragile a small breeze would scatter their curls across the ground. If you look closely you will see the beauty I think of as Miss Havisham's roses.

Macros for a winter's day.
