Tears dropping upon roses



“This day was gloomy,

gray clouds drifting,

then scurrying, across the sky.

Her sobs were not to be stopped,

her fate not to be transported

far away to other lands across

the ocean. Travel rough but

not as fearful as her

destiny of one day

after another of

hurts given

out for no

My friend, Merril, writes

unique haibuns, poems,

weekly musings, and

something called a quadrille.

Her recent post is called,

“Echoes from the Before Time.”

She mentions a rose garden “refuge,”

an “artificial oasis.” Please read

more of what lies beyond

the perimeter of a world

she created on her blog:

rosebud capture seemed

to represent innocence;

while tears showed

in rain; pouring

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
