“Purity” – White Cosmos

"Purity" - White Cosmos“The light of love, the purity of grace,
The mind, the Music breathing from her face,
The heart whose softness harmonised the whole —
And, oh! that eye was in itself a Soul!”
― George Gordon Byron

At this time of the season, when plants begin to wilt from the exertions of the summer, the cosmos still perseveres, brightening my gardens with their snow white purity and diaphanous petals.

I see the cosmos as such a pure and delightful plant. It’s so delicate, you’d think the petals would break or fold to the touch, yet they don’t. They weather the heat, the storm, and the wind, retaining their beauty and I’m glad to see a survivor.
