Saturday:) A Single Rose

14 Jun

“The gentle rose offers a powerful joy known only to the heart.”

― Andrew Pacholy

A SINGLE ROSE

I picked a single rose

From my flower bed today.

This has much more meaning

Than a hundred rose bouquet.

Roses from a florist

Or a grocery store display

Could never match the love

That a homegrown rose can say.

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

A lot of sitting around on a Saturday calls for a little poetry. Sometimes, I just see something special and decide it needs a poem. Not just any kind of poem, but a homegrown inspired right from the heart poem.

I keep promising myself that I’m going to put together a book of my poems inspired by my paintings or photographs. But, it turns out I am much better at procrastination than determination. Someday?

I took a nice evening walk before dusk, and as I sat on a bench, I contemplated my day and my single rose. Inspiring.

Happy Saturday, my friends.
