Friday:) Final Blossoms Fading Fast

10 Dec

“Love without reason—bloom without season.”

Final blossoms fading fast

Chill of winter here at last.

Like in life they cannot stay

Left to die and fade away.

But in Spring a bud appears

Sharing joy throughout the years.

I went out in the dark last night and cut the final beautiful blossoms from my rose bush. We were expecting freezing temps and frost. It’s mid December, and miraculous that the roses were still thriving and blooming this late in the season. I placed the remaining colorful blooms in a festive Christmas tea cup to brighten my kitchen and my day.

      Thank you. I’ve learned so much and have been inspired by many kindred spirits. Writers who share their thoughts and their soul with the world, as you do, have a great weekend,
