HER MOUTH BLOOMING OUT OF THE QUITE VASE OF HER BODY LIKE THE BUD OF A ROSE

Day 5

This wonderful analogy comes from ‘The Bell Jar’ by Sylvia Plath.

I love how the character is described as quite, while her mouth is beautiful and pronounced. As if describing a girl who is still shy but has grown into a beautiful woman that does not know it yet.
