A Pink Rose

My best friend and I
Ran barefoot through the garden
Stirring the petals
Her hair tied back in two braids
Her skirt trailed out behind her

We sat by the stream
With our feet in the water
Talking and laughing
Until a pink rose I plucked
And wove it into her dark braids

What Love means

What Love means / Was Liebe bedeutet / Que el amor significa  

Love's soft petals fall
Leaving bare thorny branches
Heady perfume gone
But with care and attention
From one rose grows a bouquet


Zarte Liebesblüten fallen
Nur nackte dornige Zweige bleiben
Kein berauschender Duft mehr
Doch mit Pflege und Liebe
Wird aus einer Rose ein Bouquet


Pétalos de amor caen
Dejando lampiñas ramas espinosas
No más embriaga perfume
Pero con cuidado y atención
Crece de una rosa un ramillete


Love a blooming rose
Always flowering in us 
And nourished by faith
A never ending story
A safe heaven for our soul



Liebe eine blühende Rose
Sie blüht immer in uns
Genährt durch Vertrauen
Eine unendliche Geschichte
Zuflucht für unsere Seele 



El amor es una rosa
Floreciendo en nosotros
Alimentados por la confianza
Una historia sin fin
Refugio de nuestra alma

'Being bipolar is like a rose'

Being bipolar
is like a rose born missing
some of its petals,--
its color is more vibrant
than all the other roses'!

It may never be
part of a "perfect" bouquet,--
but its rich pigment
can be a precious paint for
Da Vinci's "Mona Lisa."

Alas, it may not
attract the most "honeybees"
in the wilds of life,--
but its petals can be crushed
to make the finest perfumes.

Being bipolar
is like a rose born missing
some of its petals,--
its bouquet is more fragrant
than all the other roses'!

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.

Orange Roses

In the roses' glow you ignite me - warm fingers stroking, stoking me until heated buds unfurl their fire-flushes of desire. Molten petals flare - a furnace of flame fragrance scorching like lava combusting in the burning heart of a blazing bouquet.

Death of a Rose

A summer rose fades
One by one its petals fall
In downward spiral
Scattered by an autumn breeze 
It's fragrance a memory

Orange Roses

Orange roses

A lonesome starlet
And a lusty lover-moon 
Scarlet thoughts of  tides
Of deep passion and romance
I dream of orange roses.

Roses fresh and rare
Covering you all over
And I flick them one 
By one to find my love bites
Wherever the roses were.

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.

Nature

Atop a red rose 
A field mouse soundly slept 
When seen by a crow. 
That swooped and ate the mouse 
The rose didn’t lose a petal.
