A Rose Fan...

Happy New Week!
so many people dislike Mondays,
although I too
 hate to see the weekend end...
I always view Mondays
 as mini New Years Day's
a fresh start,
full of possibilities...
My Monday is off to a lovely start...

I am here to share
 a little simple joy with you...
A paper fan
and a spray of roses...

the pretty paper fan
was my grandmothers...
the simply Victorian Romance
tugs my heart...

while as you know
 the Roses consume my heart...

“There was something rather blousy about roses in full bloom,
 something shallow and raucous,
 like women with untidy hair”
Daphne du Maurier

Happy New Week!

More of the Point Defiance Rose Gardens...

 I hope you don't mind...
I am going to take you back
 to Point Defiance Rose Garden
with me again today...
Its as close to heaven on earth
as I can imagine...

The Rose Garden

  Come walk with me
 In the heart of the Earth
Where sweetness conquers bitterness Always.

Come sing with me
 In the soul of the Earth
Where joy is flesh
Where love is visible
And diamonds and rubies are made Of velvet.

Come dance with me
 Among the silken flames
 That are never quenched
That never burn.

Let us dance Forever
Where the spirits smile
In my private world

 as we start
this new week
my fellow rose aficionados...
I hope you too,
find a reason to dance
 I am always so grateful for your company...
