letter & meaning

it's always words that undress you.
Janet FitchWhite Oleander1999

"Oleander time" refers to the time of year when the Oleander flower is in bloom. The blossoms are delicate and beautiful, yet the plant is toxic in all it’s parts; Oleander is one of the most poisonous of commonly grown garden plants. Also notably fragrant, the beautiful but dangerous flowers serve as symbols for the conceptions of desire and consequence in human behavior. Unlike nature, we can’t blame the wind for our actions; the emotions of guilt and remorse are inescapable, and what appears worthwhile in the heat of passion may actually result in regrettable consequences.
