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.

When You Say My Name- Double Tanka

When you say my name
Stars rush down from the heavens
Dressing me in light
I become goddess divine
Fashioned by love in your voice

When you say my name
The world is too small a place
My soul wanders free
Gliding down the Milky Way
The Queen of the blessed night

Thy Name

Murmurs in the wind
Like those echoes from within
Whispering thy name
Like a song hummed by cherubs
Serenading my lost soul.
