The Purpose of the Rose

The Rose in the Autumn Sun

I stopped to gaze upon a Rose today
As it gave me a joyous smile
Its strength was slowly fading
It was clinging to its final and last breath
Petals gently falling like tears upon my face
As it drooped its head towards the ground
So that I the voyeur would be given that last pleasure
Of seeing the wonder of beauty of this selfless little rose

Perhaps the Purpose is to express one's beauty on a spiritual level at all times giving and doing with Love ... To be selfless like the Rose giving yourself without return ... And to leave a scent and the vision of your beauty in the memory of someone, somewhere.

This will be the making of a beautiful world ... your contribution to creation.


Hugs for all those that pass by. :o)

Quotes on Roses

The red rose whispers of passion, And the white rose breathes of love;O, the red rose is a falcon,And the white rose is a dove. John Boyle O’Reilly

The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends.
Persian Proverb

But earthlier happy is the rose distill'd Than that which withering on the virgin thornGrows, lives, and dies in single blessedness.
William Shakepeare

The rose that lives its little hour Is prized beyond the sculptured flower.
Bryant


a walking cane
no elegance or fame
a twisted old bough from under the bower
to wade away the endless hour
a friend to join you in your walk
a friend to whisper and talk
no elegance or fame
a walking cane
funny how it can stand in the corner just waiting for you to take it a walk.
God is our Walking Cane
He will always take you for a walk.
But do you always go?

Hi,
I'm glad that I'm here. I started my day with your wonderful quotes and words about rose. It gave me a joyous smile too.

"Perhaps the Purpose is to express one's beauty on a spiritual level at all times giving and doing with Love ... To be selfless like the Rose giving yourself without return ... And to leave a scent and the vision of your beauty in the memory of someone, somewhere".

To leave a lasting imprint of beauty on the life of someone is the essence of our humanity, I think. Thanks for the great post!

A delightful poem Trinitystar. You've strung together the words like a song played on a beautiful acoustic guitar.
