Love or Life

140th place
The 2 fern leaves, with their matching colouration, stand out from the rest and signifies a mirroring connection between them, implying a relationship of unique harmony to the exclusion of all others. Much like love. But, upon closer inspection the unique semblance of this couple stems from their affliction, that both are drying out and dying. Yet, without this condition both would be just like all the others, removing from them their unique quality and more importantly, their mirroring connection to each other. Hence the paradox. That if attaining the prize required a sacrifice so great, then is it courageous to have love and lost, or is it wise not to test the flame in the wind so as to always keep the kindle of hope alive. Between the two, what should one choose – love, or life?
