Rose Garden

“The beauty of that June day

was almost staggering. After the wet spring,

everything that could turn green

had outdone itself in greenness

 and everything that could even dream

of blooming or blossoming

was in bloom and blossom.”

— Dan Simmons

“You walk through a series of arches, so to speak, and then, presently, at the end of a corridor, a door opens and you see backward through time, and you feel the flow of time, and realize you are only part of a great nameless procession.” — John Huston
