Peder Severin Krøyer: Les Roses

I have been thinking a lot about roses and their language lately. In fact, learning the way they bloom and all the care they need made me think that, during their lifetime, they are very similar to human beings.

To start with, it is interesting to reflect that pruning roses is an intimidating process, although essential to their well-being and there’s no doubt that becoming an accomplished rose pruner takes time and practice. Pruning a rose in a wrong way means that mistakes will grow out very quickly and it is better to make good effort and pruning roses than to let them grow rampant.

Living everyday is an intimidating process although essential to everybody’s well-being and there’s no doubt that becoming an accomplished leader of our lives takes time and practice. Making the wrong decisions means that mistakes, anxiety and pain will grow out very quickly and it is better to make good efforts of living effectively than to let bad decisions/ habits grow rampant.

Pruning roses or stick to the point in our lives encourage new growth and bloom; remove dead or diseased wood or remove wasted thoughts makes us move, as it improves air circulation and  joy of breathing again. In case of human beings, it shapes the way of looking at yourself and life as well.

Maybe the essence of life is condensed in a rose.

„Die Rose ist ohne Warum.
Sie blühet, weil sie blühet.
Sie achtet nicht ihrer selbst,
fragt nicht, ob man sie siehet.“

Angelus Silesius
