Sleeping Roses

Sleeping Roses

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

Lips kissing a Rose ... the fragrance of Wisteria

"
When Spring arrives in early May we will 

dance around tulips and breathe in wisteria... 

Foxtrotting around sleeping roses 

by the goldfish pond and beyond... 

through the Gate overlooking the City with Steeples and 

a River running along with rapids and ghosts hovering over... 

We will waltz into the romance of roses unfolding with 

love and laughter and the music of flowers....

i find ghosts quite intriguing...and have had a couple encounters. I like this poem for that, but also for the peacefulness and romance of it...ghosts are often depicted as evil, scary, but that is not always the case...
they are like blooming roses...in spring their visages shoot up...and haunt us beautifully.

Reality and dreams. the near spiritual and romance, all here and more. You poet you, such a beautiful sketch, such a calm, meandering view of your lovely, calm, bright yet subtle world. I love this, Pat... truly do. Buying a ticket, arrive yesterday!

I love the way you throw in everything but the kitchen sink (ghosts?) This one feels like it's been written with much uninhibited anticipation, the way you skip from this idea to another and another, almost with a breathless effect. Way to say: "so ready for spring" . . . in an original way. Love that you never use the standard imagery, always something bright & sparkling (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Everything about your poem seems to create the perfect day in the perfect season. How the glory of the colors rise up from the earth, the scent is magnificent, and everything comes to life in wonder. And then, then the loving and laughing and dancing. Perfection.
