Poem: In the Garden... Within Heart's Love

A rose, and beauty be known


delicate be this holding of sun's light
petals of majestic grandeur and delight
enfold they Creation's tender embrace
the bloom of a rose within heart's love I place.
a flower, a memory, this benediction of time
beauty be truth's expression divine.

After thoughts and visions of a Memorial Day gone by...beauty shows itself in the bloom of a Rose... the sublime gentleness expressed... grasp gently for thorns hold to its protection. ...as too, with each life lived.

Ms Raccioppi: I think your work would be more effecitve is you published a longer blog less frequently. That way I could read these poems as a block. Also is it necessary for you to comment on your own work? The reader should get what the reader gets or not.
