In the moment of roses...

White roses, tiny and old, hover
among thorns by the barn door.
For a hundred years under the
June elm, under the gaze of
seven generations, they floated
briefly like this, in the moment
of roses.


Psst ~ I really don't think I have a romantic bone left...so this is for you.


  1. I just love old fashioned wild roses, so impromptu yet stunningly beautiful.
    Love your poem...just the fact that you have posted it, shows you 'do' have a romantic bone ;)

  2. Loved the roses! Computer crazy! Mercury must be retrograde! If u have time, do u mind to try and leave comment? Think I finally have this fixed!
    Maggie is recovering from surgery and am busy w follow up care w her. Had to postpone Eureka Springs trip due to her illness.

  3. I love the roses - I have a very special one in my garden in memory of my Dad! Beautiful poem too.
