Flower of the Day

Captured during Autumn in Ogunquit Maine


I took a road trip to New England a few years back.  Me, myself, and I conquered the 14 hour drive with only one mishap…a flat tire.  While walking the streets of Ogunquit Maine I saw these lovely flowers, and was compelled to capture them on film.  (Old terminology…I know…but hey, I’m over 50 and set in my ways.)  🙂

Roses For Mama

Roses for mama 2These roses, mama,

I planted for you.

I hope you see them,

in morning’s dew.


I look to their beauty,

behold your spirit.

Each flower I see,

I feel you near it.


Beautiful flowersRoses for mama

you always grew.

Gardens of grace,

in their morning’s dew.


I long for the day,

I see you again.

You in the roses,

must do, till then.

These roses mama,

I planted for you.
