The Essence of Rose

In the twilight hours Out here on this ledge I am filled With the essence of Rose As a gentle breath stirs The fallen petals Strewn over That long and winding road Here on the brink Where so many have come Before me And simply let go I find myself wondering Why I am here Yet! I am afraid to know So I cling to this ledge Overcome with fear Knowing the end is near For there's no going back Once you are here for that moment In Time Disappeared So... I sit here Filled up With the essence of Rose Each petal A memory Etched forever On that road of life Paved with both Joy and misery Until the last petal falls Then I finally let go Here at the end of the road I, the last tear From the faded blue eye Of dear Old wild Rose Written: July 15, 2015 Author: Elaine Cecelia George, of Canada

    Top marks for this beautiful and touching personification, Elaine! We all cling on for dear life, fully knowing that our time will eventually come. In the meantime may this rose captivate us with its essence and fragrance! #7 All the best. // paul

    I see you are also Canadian. Which part of Canada are you from? Often what we think of as the end of the road an entry to a fabulous destination. After all roads are designed to get us to the places we dream of. You strike me as a prolific dreamer.

    I like the clinging to rose as an end of destination. Seems the roses are the last to go when autumn is over and winter approaches. Wonderful to hear from you, dear Lainie. Love and happiness on ya. daver
