Saepe creat molles aspera spina rosas;


Symphonie des roses;

Iceberg roses/my garden;




This the  rose
In winter white;
Low shadows cast and pause
On golden heart, 
 fragrance hovers
slowly breaks apart. 
Silently waiting for summer’s sun;
Stretching, yearning
Frosty white petals shiver, 
silently  bow
 All it’s scent and allure
 lost and done
Golden heart still aglow.  
Titania






Saepe creat molles aspera spina rosas - Often the prickly thorn produces tender roses. (Ovid)
