Rose on Fire


New Year brings the thoughts to mind
Of all that’s passed and left behind
Pathways crossed still intertwined
In flaming roses on the vine

New Year brings what hope desires
While music plays from mystic choirs
Sometimes dreamers walk the wire
And leave behind the rose on fire

New Year brings what lovers lose
Inside the rhymes from which we choose
Yet eyes will warm with tendered hues
When flaming roses grace the muse

A most beautiful 2017 to all of you… Thank you for dropping by and brightening my first day of the new year…

    • Hi Mim… I”m so glad to hear from you. I must come visit your site to catch up… I have done a very bad job of keeping up with those I enjoy so very much… So maybe 2017 I’ll be able to wander more in the islands…

      Wishing you a beautiful year ahead, Mim…
