Unfathomable Treasures

img_2374

Ever longing for the calming brilliance

Of the radiant ocherous colored rose

Her inviting sunset complexion

Is always a resplendent sight to behold

 

Eternally dreaming of the heavenly scent

Given off by the easily blemished ivory gardenia

Her delicate petals loathe the slightest touch

And yet she freely shares her intoxicating scent

 

Perpetually yearning for the consoling assurance

Of the velvety blushing carnation

Her impeccable celebrated pink ruffles

Are exquisitely formed and everlasting

 

Infinitely languishing the uniqueness

Of the extraordinary snapdragon

Her sophistication brings inspiration

To those who revel in her individualism

 

Forever grateful for the abounding beauty

Of the earth and the splendor which she reveals

Her mysterious treasures are abundantly scattered

Enjoyed by all who care enough to acknowledge her

  14. I’ve made a deal with my husband. I get a night of dinner, dancing, and new dress if I make it to my goal. He wants a hunting rifle if he makes it to his goal. Lol… Opposites…

  17. Well he’s in the military, so he doesn’t really have a choice. They’ll kick him out if he exceeds the standards.
