The Last Roses of Summer


They hung on
After the frost.
After the rain.
After the cold.

They hung on
For me,
I think,
To find their heart.

To warm my own.

And yours.

Wowohwow...I got goosebumps with this one. That in addition to filling my eyes with this exquisite beauty. Oh...Sissy--the words you write, are soooo cuddly--I want to curl up around them, and look at this amazing photograph.

Oh Sissy Cea that is sooo beautiful. You make me cry. It reminds me of the story by O Henry I believe its called "The Last Leaf."
I hope you're just feeling great because I am...everytime I think about you. Love you

Oh what a wonderful poem. So full of Heart and Soul with a Spirit all its own. Your last roses of summer are Beautiful, as are you dear one. Shining out beyond what seems possible, lifting up one's Spirit, opening one's Heart to the All the possibilities of Life. Blessings to you and yours. Love and Light, Nina P
