Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

In regal beauty... the red Gerber...bathes

An awe-inspiring flower did touch my heart one day
And though its beauty yielded radiance, I had no words to say.
I watched the petals form and fan in no short span of time.
While gradually I felt its power that swayed this regal rhyme.

A sprinkling of the rain fell softly and hung.
Round beads as golden glass on the petals they clung.
My eyes filled with wonder and small human tears.
This beauty before me was tender and dear.

A bath from on high caused the glistening and shine.
It prompted my memory to also be thine.
Put all of my trust in the lord of the lathe.
And seek my own duty… as the red Gerber… bathes.


  1. A very flowery poem, indeed. Your appreciation for the beauty of nature is most admired by me. Glistening rain on delicate petals..ah the visual splendour!
    Thanks dcrelief.

  2. Well Klahanie, thank you very much. I feel a bit proud of this one myself (sh, don't tell.) I do love flowers.


Thank you for visiting me. Want to add your thoughts?
