A ROSE IS A ROSE IS MORE

BEL’OCCHIO   … the beautiful eye

A ROSE IS MORE THAN A ROSE

The last bits of early morning fog clutched  at the garden.

Hovered over a heavily laden branch of roses

Bent almost double with the fragrant  flowers.

She plundered the branches

Sniping away each perfect rose.

She filled the crystal bowl with their fragrance.

She filled the quiet room with their presence,

She filled her soul with their joy.

(These  beautiful roses are Princess Beatrice David Austin roses. )

    • Mr. Tin Man, I was up early this morning … the fog rolled across the fields from the river. The air was silvery with a champagne like feeling. I plan to spend most of the day on our front patio – with a pile of books and a clutch of Leonard Cohen cd’s. Lar is off climbing in Squamish so the day is mine. I have climbed the white stairs to yours and Augustine’s door several times this week.

    • I know Toronto is glowing with beautiful flowers right now. I do so love walking around those old neighborhoods especially West Queen West. Have a grand day Resa. XO
