Do not mourn your loss of fragrance,
do not wish your petals back;
leave off grieving for last summer
as the winter world goes black.
Take these hours to rest your branches,
let your roots sink deep in soil;
last year’s growth sets up potential
for next summer’s greensome toil.
Melody, your photography is truly noteworthy. With appropriate credit of course, may I use one from time to time? Let me know if you have a royalties plan established and I don’t mind participating. I simply love the pics.
Go right ahead – you have my hearty permission!
Beautiful Melody. To everything there is a season…thanks for sharing beautiful pics with soul searching words!
