a thorned bed
flowering the air
with its fragrance
divine heal a-

its petals of light
sailing night's breath glowing
notes of soft silences
to my soliloquy

I, too love roses, especially lavendar ones... The petals and scent are to die for. Sweet and seductive, yet altogether innocent. Beautiful as always, Maria...aloha..;-)

I think you pay them a good tribute with this. Beautiful work.

I am smiling... you brought a breath of loving spring to me. With a sweetly loving, and somehow tenative touch... thank you

Ahhhh it's been said already so well. A rose by any other name touched by the magic of your words, gives fragrance more graciously than from a bush in full bloom!

The rose is a golden spiral. So too is your heart, your poem; neverending.

Roses are one of my favorite flowers to photograph. All their varieties fascinate me. One of the most beautiful roses I've ever seen is one that is a varegated red and white on the petals. Another one of my favorite colors for a special reason are peach-colored roses. You make this beautiful flower come alive with sight and scent. So beautiful Maria.
