White Roses

photo by Ricardo Alves











creamy white roses, indigo sky
promises of everlasting devotion
luscious scent, whispering sighs
poetic verses, full of emotion

flowering buds of affection grow
romance blooming, garden of love
white petals , blue misty glow
soaring high on wings of a dove

innocence , a lover's first kiss
collapsing within soft moist skin
entwined in the arms of  bliss
intoxicating aroma, world spins

beyond the dark veil of night
falling rose petals, white satin
our spirits ascend, new height
no greater love can we imagine


Author's Note:

This work was a collaboration with
Ricardo Alves from Brazil who has
generously sent me this photograph
to interpret with my words.  Thank
you Richardo it was my pleasure 
to pen these verses to your beautiful
photo.

    1. Hi Grace,

      Thanks for visiting..I usually write and then find a picture to compliment what I wrote but, in this case I used the photo
      and then penned the verses on how I felt about the roses.

  8. A collaboration you couldn't pass by
    As the rose you were able to spy
    When those buds take hold
    Things can sure turn to pure gold
    Hand in hand across the land
    Making up ones own bora bora sand
    That collapse would be nice too
    Between me and you

    1. A collaboration I couldn't pass
      as the beautiful roses I did behold
      speaking to me the language of love

      hope we make it to the bora sand
      as we travel by sea and by land
      a new adventure I have planned...
