Dark Ornament

I used to walk by this flower several times in my boarding school at night. It was standing all alone in the middle of those long dim leaves. The flower is white and that gives it that reflection that makes it the most noticeable flower around at night. I was intrigued by how it gave shine and luminescence to the dark night. it was also beautiful to see that the flower gives food and shelter to those small insects which only made it more beautiful. it was like it had freckles. since then, every night I gave myself some seconds to appreciate its scenery. But winter was coming, and the flower was going to die soon. I took some photos of it because I could not find a better way to gaze at its beauty permanently. And of course, I love taking photos of flowers anyway. Thankfully, I could get some decent photographs. So, in a way I could save the flower because maybe I would not see any other flower with the same shape and the same scenery.
