A Rose is a Rose

Love in life is ill fated beauty of love’s face often abated a rose is a rose no matter the face pose a rose in a garden is still a rose... no face of love graced, faces of life are strife laced all wilted and covered with mildew of Excellency of grace… a rose often glows in beauty of grace beauty in a Greek nose Love often shows... though a rose is not a nose nor is love the face pose for life’s face is not grace... Love faced is love graced toward we quicken our pace as we see in a dark mirror… light of beauty’s grace though no beauty in life’s race and a rose is a rose... regardless of its pose has a face… Beauty Graced! ========= Note: "It is my belief that everyone was created as Love, whatever condition that love might currently be in is simply a reflection of each person's wellness, his past choices, and his ability to deal with life. Often the inner power of love has been neglected, disbelieved, abused or denied. A rose in a garden is still a rose, even if it is wilted and cover with mildew. The weary and troubled faces you see around you are the faces of those whose love is broken or denied." 'LOVE WITHOUT END' by Glenda Green

roses in biblical times were the only plants that were allowed to be planted near the temples. the fertilizer used to plant other flowers made the temple stink but roses were the exception because they smell good :) just thought you would be interested in knowing that and 7 up i love this poem

I choose to believe that the rose retains its beauty eternally, John. Sure, we age, we lose track of what is meaningful i our lives, but I never want to look into a "dark mirror" and see no love in my heart. Very touching poem, John. Love, Carolyn
