FLOWER FRIDAY - PINKTOBER 25
Do these petals detract
from the rose that once was
or do they add something
that couldn’t be seen before?
Have I forgotten the rose so soon
or does the lingering perfume
of the petals assail my nostrils
to remind me of the beauty
that I once enjoyed?
At every stage this Compassion rose gave pleasure
and even now, when it no longer blooms
the pleasure lingers on
in my memory - and so it is with us -
we make an impression
on those around us
and even when we have changed
and gone through many experiences
we still leave our mark or fragrance
to remind our family and friends
of the different stages of our journey
that couldn’t be seen before.
