Blue Roses of Christmas

Blue Roses of Christmas

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

Blue dreams of memories

"
A blue moon hovers across an ocean of dreams 

where sweet memories in blue lights shine for thee... 

As snowflakes settle on evergreen trees 

a bluebird whispers I love the stars that twinkle... 

Once upon a Christmas past when wise men 

travelled from far away places to follow a 

Star of hope and joy and Noel peace... 

The Angels sang Hallelujah to a new born King 

and shepherds watched over the Manger... 

We pray for all the children who need the warmth 

of love and caring at this time of Blue Roses unearthed.

the blue rose is the perfect flower for Christmas isn't it!? wondrous pic to go with your poem Pat ... the moon always grabs my attention so your first line hooked me .. and any time the moon is blue or super or blood or any other of its more infrequent appearings ... i must read on ;) very interesting flow to this one...first three lines rhythm and rhyme and then off to more of a prose read ... read it over several times to get past the jolt :) and a very special closing for the children ... all your blue images enchant me ..

Well done, Pat. I'm a little late getting to this, but I celebrate Christmas until after Orthodox Christmas in January. They need shining lights and festive decorations too. As always, Christmas is for kids and those of us who are big kids and as a reminder of the special gift we all should celebrate.

A good write.

Yes... prayers and hope... a miracle indeed. We may be Wise to Believe. truly, Pat
A topical poem for Christmas, and I like the imagery conveyed in the lines,such as a 'blue moon hovers across an ocean of dreams'. I thought the use of 'blue roses' is a very good metaphor for those children who need warmth and care over Christmas. This poem captures the season of Christmas quite accurately.

Although Christmas has passed but the magic has not. Your lines celebrate the Messiah and the symbolic honor. A lovely poem and a peaceful message. I hope the New Year will be wondrous.

So many children suffering at this time of year Pat and it is most fitting that they should be remembered particularly at Christmas. Your blue roses, blue moon and bluebird touch this reader with sadness. I enjoyed the nativity you gave me, reminding me of the true meaning of Christmas. I send you all good wishes.
