The Blue Rose

Blue Rose

The Blue Rose ~
Once a flourishing bush
Summer fragrant blooms
Give way to winter thorns
Trees grow and hide the sun
Year after year only a single rose blooms
Until the year the sun darkens the perfumed bush
No more summer fragrant pedals
Just one stem and thorns came forth
Until the day a soul is gone
The one who loved the blooming rose
Wanted to leave his love behind
When all hope was lost for the rose to bloom
The rose blossomed once again
Three bluish blooms graced the home where love resided
In the pedals of a Blue Rose love bloomed eternal

 In honor of Tom who loved the blooming blue rose

    1. Thank you – some blue roses are a deep blue, this was not a picture of ours. I wish I was in my right mind to take a picture of it – ours was more like a light blue with a purple tint to it. I found this picture and thought it went perfectly with the post.


      1. If I can find one – the bush did finally die so we dug up. It was sickly for so long and in its last hurrah gave us some beautiful flowers.


  1. Dear Patty,

    I am deeply touched by your prose and photo. God has richly blessed you in marking this 1st year passage. And you are blessing others.

    In His Love, Christine
