The First Rose.


So often it is written about,

That last rose of Summer.

I have a new rose in my garden

Which I now write about

As the first rose of Autumn,

Showing that new life is there,

And is always there

Not matter what season.

        A fine write Gold. A new weed popped up in our garden - not quite the same as a new rose.

          I hope you said "Hello Little weeeed!"

          So true Gold, a wonderful reframing of a feeling of loss to a feeling of hope. Where there is life there is hope.

              No matter the season, there is always new or re-birth. As the seasons change and flowers die, so too they come back and provide a symbolic hope of change for all. beautiful!
