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

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

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

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

Calla Lilies

my morning coffee
while soaking up the sunshine
the Calla Lilies 
are a balm to my senses
I breathe in their rich fragrance

Lilac

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