Rose, today is the anniversary of your untimely death, and I find myself unable to move on.  This flower is something that continues to remind me of you, and while it hurts, I wouldn’t wish it away because it’s the only thing I have left of you. Rest in peace until we meet again.

Yours always,

ROSES AND TULIPS

You! Yes, you is it that you are pretty,

Should I mind the feeling that you leave in me,

You got me crushing on all colors you come with,

Should I go for yellow, white, pink or red?

They say red is love, yes it is, but again I need peace,

So, would you mind giving me white, so I find peace?

I recall she said pink was her favorite color,

I look out through the window to look at you,

And yellow seem to have just popped out; she is so bright,

You leave me speechless, all I do is smile,

Damn, again I am falling for you.

A spring poem

We’re in March already! The spring is right around the corner, and we’ll be pleased to admire the exquisite splendor of flowers. Continuing with the previous post, I’d like to share one beautiful poem about this magnificent season.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for all the comments, support, and readings.

Spring

Nothing is so beautiful as Spring –

When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;

Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush

Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring

The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;

The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush

The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush

With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.

 

What is all this juice and all this joy?

A strain of the earth’s sweet being in the beginning

In Eden garden. – Have, get, before it cloy,

Before it cloud, Christ, lord, and sour with sinning,

Innocent mind and Mayday in girl and boy,

Most, O maid’s child, thy choice and worthy the winning.

-Gerard Manley Hopkins

 

A Poem For Rose

Here’s a short poem, submitted by one of our frequent visitors, Anastacia! What do you think?

I sat here, looking at the roses in the garden.
My garden.
I sat here and saw beauty.
Beauty, so tender, so fragile.
I sat here and saw pain.
Hooking pain, so deep, so strong.
I sat here and saw hope.
Hope to overcome, hope to lend my love to the world.
I sat here, looking at the roses in the garden.
And in that moment, I understood it all.
Beauty has its flaws.
But in flaws, perfection is found.

Purple Beauty

Isn’t there just something lovely and melancholic about Wisteria? This lovely photo was snapped by Abigail, one of our constant readers.

Thanks for this one, Abi! Hope to get more from you soon!

Maria, I Did It

“Maria,

Remember how you said I wouldn’t be able to raise Petunias? Well, I’d like to tell you that I did it! I hope that you can visit them when you come back from your travels.

Much love,

P”

Missing Summer

We got this submission from Brad. He goes on to write:

“What you see here is where Canola oil comes from. The yellow flowers you see are what we call Rapeseed or Rapaseed. It’s usually grown primarily for animal feed or to be turned int Canola oil. Before harvest, it’s a pretty great sight: unending fields of yellow–as far as the eye can see!”

Thanks for your informative post, Brad! We really appreciate it!
