Sun Rose with Petals soft

Sun Rose with Petals soft

A Poem by Patricia Wedel

There are mornings when the scent of Roses 

rises and becomes the passion for creativity... 

A tonic that lingers on the garden path where 

Butterflies flutter and Sparrows sing of Spring... 

The Roses reflect the Sun and leave an edge of 

golden trim around each perfect petal as they 

wait patiently to be picked for a bouquet... 

Shades of Yellow and Peach with lavender close by...   

A lovely Bride will carry an arrangement down the aisle.  

The Church Steeple will ring with Blue Bells that grew 

where love blossomed into a beautiful, "I do".  

As the Lohengrin wedding march played on a piano 

the Eaves of the Cathedral fluttered with Mourning Doves 

as the Reverent said... "I pronounce you man and wife... 

You may Kiss the Bride".

Beautiful imagery. Can easily visualize everything, and it’s as though the scene is slowly being revealed to us.
I do find it interesting that this pretty scene seems to end on a melancholic note

Heavy sighhhh....this was gorgeous. Reminded me of my trip to the tulip garden in Amsterdam, I have used the sites, memories and photos for a lot of writing and art the last year. It truly was one of the most inspirational and beautiful places I have been as long as you get there early before the throngs get there. You wrapped this up with a wisp of romance and a bit of melancholy. I loved it.

Thank you for your response
Beautiful thoughts of June roses and weddings here Pat. The scent of roses wafting in the morning air is something to be thankful for. Your lines took me back to my great uncle's home. He had the most beautiful garden and his roses climbed and intertwined in colours of white, pink and cream. He also had peach trees at the far end of his garden. I love the picture of your daughter's wedding that you have shared with us. Her bouquet in soft dreamy colours looks marvellous. Hope you are doing OK Pat. We have very hot weather today.

Weddings, days, moments... not a one should miss the above setting of scent and colour, gentle but present. Such lovely wording throughout, dear petal. There's something about the tight but intricate bud of a rose.. its secret ripening for the magical moment.. then there's the full flush of smiles galore and more. and even when fading or faded, the petals will be kept amd cherished in a special place forever and always. You really do pick and poetise so beautifully. Thank you so very much. Take care, keep safe, dear friend.

Pat, I imagine this was written or at least conceived while sitting in the garden, maybe hearing church bells, or maybe a memory from an actual wedding. It's remarkable how nature, especially the rose, can produce such poetry and how nature sacrifices itself for our happiness, lying before us, whispering what later becomes poetry. A truly enjoyable read this Monday morning. Best to you.
