Dancing with the Rose

Yesterday a Rose

Dance within her rosy hues

She will tease you with her scent

Exquisiteness seduces before your eyes

The intoxicating essence remains present

*

Harmony as her petals fall away

her soul laid bare

Potent yet vulnerable

Dancing around an impassioned affair

*

A circle of Intimacy

Spiralling, then wilting

A rare beauty faded

Heady nakedness

Disclosed

Then

Blooming and re-opening

Remember

Even when exposed

That

Every rose has thorns

“If you enjoy the fragrance of a rose, you must accept the thorns which it bears.” – Isaac Hayes

A rose’s rarest essence lives in the thorn.” – Rumi

I have reached my fabulous 50s. Guess what, it’s okay. 20 years in the health and wellness industry. Educating men and women on the importance of nourishing their bodies with good food, moving with integrity, recharging their energy levels and empowering their minds. I love my job. A mother of two boys who are now men and my greatest achievement. A lover of words, an aspiring author with a book written and no idea where to go next, a poet who writes from the heart and her vulnerability. A foodie who loves to experiment, a salad lover , But not just your Every day salad, I throw in anything you can think of it ends up in my salad. I have a reputation for making the greatest weirdest salads around. As a total contradiction, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I rescue abandoned souls in the bodies of dogs, an animal lover, Who sometimes likes animals more than humans. My teacher in life, my mother never ceases to amaze me. I am one fortunate human being who is filled with gratitude for the life she lives.

  1. It doesn’t get more truthful than that! Makes me think of one of the questions on Share Your World this week: Do you judge people. Everyone does, it’s just a matter of what you do with it and how you show it outside your own head.
