My Dad has written some beautiful poems, including ‘The Rose’. He’s not a member of Red Bubble (yet!). Nevertheless, this is a collaboration with him. I was inspired to do this after doing The Rose, Part I but I think this image suits his words much better.
Quivering in the Morning Sun she stood,
Waving to and fro,
Her beautiful colored head, embraced
in glittering drops of dew.
Looking at this Rose that Morning new.
I could not help but think of you,
To hold this Rose, embrace its perfume
And its Thorns too.
