Stargazer

Amidst greenery Such beauty abounds in bloom Reaching to the sky This Oriental Lily Shows gorgeous colouration . The Stargazer lily was created in 1974 by Leslie Woodriff, a lily breeder in California. Woodriff called the new cross 'Stargazer', because the blooms faced towards the sky.

A Field of Daisies

Emotion's color
pure innocent petals
blushing up at love 
smiling laughter on the wind
A happy field of daisies.

Flowers Fading Fast

A rose is a rose.
A lily is a lily.
Flowers fading fast
beneath the sweltering sun
on a blazing Summer day.

Childhood Dreams

She bends to gather Getting flowers of her youth Her mother stands near Smiling with a certain warmth This is what childhood dreams are

Garden's Beauty

Its charm, its bloom
A gift of spring breeze
Disappears fast
Something not oozing from heart
Something borrowed doesn’t last

orange roses

on the day we met
he brought me orange roses
their vibrant colour
matching the fire in his eyes
I caress the soft petals

in the center of
my love's well tended garden
orange roses bloom
through tears I pick a bouquet
to brighten his lonely grave

The Virtuous White Rose

--**--The Virtuous White Rose--**--

White rose is holy
Matrimony pureness of
Bond between lovers.
Blessing  to Old Rome deceased’s
Chastity and innocence.

White Rose in myth and
Legend was tainted by blood,
Made blush from kiss, thus
Made it red and made it pink
Against its pride purity.

Lavender Rose

A lavender rose
Placed on the bed beside her
Where he longs to be
He picked this rose just for her
True love without history

He feels so alone
The love just flows one way
Nature can be cruel
Without the gift of vision
She can't know love at first sight

Lavender Rose

pure enchantment dwells
as a lavender rose blooms
a fairytale dream
the essence of ecstasy
is the sheer magic of love

delightful love whirls
rising forth in the warm spring
desire plays gently
amid fragrant soft petals
as lavender hue rises

Lovely Lavender Rose

Love struck lavender.
Makes my heart sing once again.
Whence my eyes behold
whimsical beauty so rare.
Proof of love that's born at last!

White Rose



Beauty of a rose
It signifies purity
So white as a cloud
Your color will shows great love
Can ease the pain, can ease hate

White rose fill my heart
Your freshness refresh my soul
It gives happiness
To my aching heart that bleeds
Embrace me with your fragrance

Lilac

Sweet scented flowers
budding on the lilac trees
tiny purple blossoms
cluster of floral delight
fill the crisp air in springtime.

aromatic scent

of baby pink carnations

even as they hang their heads

while dying in their green vase

Harmonious Clearing of the Soul

Exhausting my skills To the tempered, fiber soul Timeless harmony I follow my heartstrings on Beyond glow of temptation Path in the forest Leads to grand open clearing Obscure light deepens Birds sing beyond the circle And flowers praise nature’s heights Simple minded eyes Dynamic pleasure moves on Leans over inside Heartfelt ties won’t gasp and leave Not to bring loss, frosty drought Russell Sivey

fragrant

petals fall down

drifting on a spring breeze

to blanket the ground

reminiscent of the snow

but fragrant to the senses

Her Yellow Rose


I had a great friend growing roses her passion one favorite bloom deep yellow, its fragrance sweet- growing by her sheltered seat a fragile woman joyful like her rose petals her last breath foreseen Near her headstone they planted her yellow rose "Enchanted"...

Yellow Rose

Lovely yellow rose 
Is seen as warm token of
Genuine friendship.
Comes with no obligations
To sincerely say, "I care".

Love without passion
Freely given and received,
Yellow rose message.
A lover sends red roses.
A friend chooses the yellow.

Still Bleeding

the white rose
marks the pureness
of remembrance---
still recalling
true loves loss

the rose thorns
scrape the edge
of the vase---
wearing the pricks
on my heart

Roses Without Thorns

Roses without thorns are like cherries without pits. Child without mother. There is no way possible. One must come with the other.

Fragrance of Love

lavender rosebuds have called for her attention and in that moment from the shadows of his heart he is jealous of roses she smiles while she prunes the long limbs of one rosebush then catches a glimpse of desire in his eye and roses are forgotten

salafist and valentine


Salafist Tanka  
In Timbuktu 
Tobacco is banned
Hands get cut off 
Of those who smoke cigarettes
Awkward if you roll your own   


Tanka
Knocks on the front door
A draught of cold air got in 
Sleeps between us 
Tomorrow… valentine´s day
Insincere words and flowers.

Stem to the Rose

Ones pillar of strength Edging towards it's flower On reaching their join Rich scented petals in bloom Where the stem and the Rose meet .
