Poetry from our Members

A poem written specially for one of our monthly Poetry Evenings where we present prose, song and poetry from our members
You are gift from the universe
So diverse, at times supportive, reassuring a conduit for love
In our grief, laying on a casket of a loved one, you are a symbol to celebrate their life
Lining the pathways of generations of joyful celebrations of kings and queens, princes, princesses and the privileged.
To the common people as they delicately dress their marital bed with you as an expression of their eternal love
Your infinite, timeless qualities are a symbol of honour, courage and achievement in times of conflict, adversity and peace
To Your endurance, standing fast to the extremes of natures seasons to achieve your commitment to perennial longevityPoetry from one of our Members
So elegantly placed above your barbed and briary stem, your vibrant aromas seduce us and inspire our senses
One could ask why!
Such abundance of beauty is embroidered amongst a somewhat tortured and tormented looking body
But then of such heritage.
Ours is not to question!
But……… to rejoice in the gift of our beloved rose.
