"Handle everything as gentle as you can. And what you cannot put right, you must make as little wrong as possible." Thomas Moore


An elegant figure sits upon her throne.Her luchus green servants make her food. Her white dress bobs in the wind the simple purple sweater covers her. On top of her head a stunning crown blends. Her messenger whispers the secrets it has overheard in his journey. She must not have any enimies, for she was the last rose. The biggest threat was still to come. IT was sly and quiet. Slowly taking out everyone. Then it called to the skies and sent down
snow.

I wrote this about our Rose of Sharon bush out in front. I was thinking about how it would feel to be a rose "knowing" that winter was coming.
