    Join in please,

        The petals of my rose,
        Are opening slowly,
        A new era dawning...
        A creative adventure
        Please share in this
        As the gentle rain,
        Leaves it's tear drops behind
        On the red rose of memory...

    An artist takes out his palette.
          Begins to mix his colours,
          The sun hides behind the clouds,
          Birds fill the sky....
          Their sound of contentment
          Creating the perfect atmosphere....

    The artist.....
    soaks in the atmosphere around him
    Longing for another human
    To walk into his world,
    And inspire, the first stroke
    Of the morning...
    He lays out his brushes,
    In order of size,
    Strokes the tip of each brush,
    Lovingly........

    remembering every line of her face
    her exceptional beauty and amazing grace
    she would fill his heart to the brim
    when she lovingly gazed up at him
    she could make anywhere a happy place
    she held a magical spell in her face
    and he knew his brushes could bring her to life
    as he slowly and lovingly recreated his wife.

    So as the sun rises
    The rose petals open
    Spreading their arms
    An invitation to a warm embrace
    The scent of her perfume
    Calls to the honey bee
    He lights upon her petals
    Now adorned in the morning dew
    He probes her center
    and drinks her nectar
    Sated he flies back
    to his hive
    to share his love
    and his longing
    for the rose.

    The day drifts slowly by.....
    The rose now almost fully opened,
    The perfume of his loved one,
    still in the air,
    A colourful butterfly
    Sits on the end of his brush,
    To his delight

    he needed to capture the woman and child
    the caring, the loving and even the wild
    for there were so many facets to this rose
    should her fragile petals be open or should they be closed

    open symbolized her heart and her mind
    closed embraced her love of mankind
    mixing the colors with infinite care
    the perfect shade for her long golden hair

    his pencil he now takes from his bag,
    An eraser should he not quite draw
    The rose, the thorns, the petals,
    To his liking,
    Or should the sun move
    It's direction.....
    He sips his drink.....
    Looks at his work of art so far
    He is far from pleased as yet

    has he lost his touch
    or has the memory faded
    to what he wants her to be
    or does he want to keep
    her all to himself
    a magic only he can see
    he waits drinking in the last of the sun
    knowing when its over they will be one

    The lady of his dreams,
    In his memory...
    He takes out a picture of her,
    Takes in a deep breath
    Admires the butterfly,
    Now, hovering over the flowers
    His lady planted,
    She who came along
    Just at the right time
    With a short brush stroke,
    He touches the canvas once more
    Smiling now of his memory

    A rainbow appears in the sky,
    The sun out, the rain falling
    In diaganol lines
    The artist, still sitting
    Gazing at his canvas
    Now with pleasure

    Honey bee, butterfly, man
    Canvass photograph,
    Brushes, colours
    memories
    Shortage of humans...
    No problem for him

    Oh...to be this much in love with her always
    Fondness of great memories shared on many days.
    Love that has grown apart...and back again,
    Love that has counted her a blessing...counted her a friend.
    Silly Romantic notions fly high out of reach,
    Slowly...Carefully...a new embrace for each.
    With the dawn of another day that keeps on movin'
    I see...these two ol' lovers...haven't lost their groovin'!

        Not necessarily, my dear poet lorraine...Although I see where you would get that. The first sentences actually speak of love  coming back again...! Very fun of you to take a look at this one a little closer...that's the mark of a gifted poetess big_smile
        Thanks for mentioning it in a quote box!

      Forever will they be
      Connected
      Though more in mind and spirit
      A communicating force
      An Aspect of love
      A dimention
      No ordinary love
