A Dozen Scented Sunset Roses

A Dozen Scented Sunset Roses

A Poem by Patricia Wedel

As an amber orange Sun sets in the West... 

a peaceful glow bows to the day and the virtue thereof   

where Sunset Roses rest in a Vase with petals soft and 

unaffected by the celebration of years spent in romantic 

symphonies of persuasion where the scent of love invades 

the depth of interpretation when lovers sleep in provocative 

dreams and wander in distant meadows of moonbeams...  

I dedicate this poem to my King of the Castle.... Roger Arthur...

WOWZA! This is an awesome tribute to your hunny! I love how you portray "love" as something very complex & beautiful, nothing to trifle with! Cherrie wrote something about moonbeams, which I just read, & she mentioned your poem being an inspiration to her. Then she gave me the great idea of combining moonbeams with surfing, since I'm a Cali girl. So, I'm jerking around the synapses to see what shakes out about moonbeams, so I can share this timely trend with the harvest moon coming up & soon after that a BLUE MOON (it only happens once in a blue moon -- end of October!) My favorite phrase of your poem: "symphonies of persuasion" -- I know nothing about long-term love, but I would imagine this is the key that unlocks every door -- and I don't mean only the bedroom door, I mean all the ways a couple must compromise for the greater good -- that's a skill I haven't pursued much! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

my wife 'puts up' with my test reads
One of my sisters is very supportive
all the rest of the family will not become involved with my poetic (?) efforts, and each time I read one of your wonderful flights of fancy, I am sorry for all they are missing.
More wonderful stuff!

Such a softly sensual sketch of love, of life, of the glimpses of two lives wandering in dreams as one. There is a whole novel here, told in every letter and line. And what a beautiful dedication to your King.
