Your bloom is short lived.
A brief moment in time.
Yet it brings such great joy;
Your beauty sublime.

The curve of your stem
Your petals so soft.
As the breeze rustles by
Sending sweetness aloft.

Leaves embrace warmly
As your fragrance emotes
A lasting impression
Of sensuous throats

In the time of your being
You share with us briefly
Your unconscious beauty
Given ever so freely.

Never a moment
Of sadness or strife.
Just simple, grand beauty
Within your breath of life.

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…
