Fully Grown

Morden Blush

The vows, inception, but a bud,

Which Time has now released;

The years, the layers, gracious flood

Where depth of love increased.

The petals, pathways intertwined,

Your fingers in my own;

The flower, beauty, souls aligned,

A marriage fully grown.

      Thanks Russ! Funny actually that roses are so symbolic of love – they sure don’t last very long in reality! But – they’re pretty and they sure smell good. So I’ll just go with it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beautiful. But, yes, maybe something slow growing and long lived like a cactus would be more realistic a symbol for love. ๐Ÿ˜€
