SomePinkFlowers For You

I'm not even home a week,
and I'm leaving again...

This time for the 8th annual
International Labyrinth Society Gathering
in Kansas...

So, I will share more of my travels
when I return after the 12th of November...

My sweet blogging friend,
SomePinkFlowers,
asked me to bring her back some pink flowers from Paris
and where ever else I could find them,
St. Genis Pouilly, Provence, Amsterdam,
in the courtyard of museums,
cemeteries,
flower and fruit stands,
on hanging baskets over canals,
as they are rare to find in the Fall...

And... this week
her heart is hurting at the loss of precious trees
in her neighborhood...

So here they are,
for SomePinkFlowersBonnieBee,
and for all of you...

Enjoy...

Can you smell their sweet fragrance???

These flowers
blooming
radiance
from far, far away...

Where history
roots
in stone walls
and winding trails,
where bones
and flesh
are reborn
in morning dew
and the canals   
that line the streets
that draw me in
and down
and around into memories
oh not so old...

Petals fall...
and the seasons
change
and I remember holding you
full in my arms
breathing in the scent
of your entire being...

Oh sweet flower,
bud of my desire,
unfolding in beauty
before me...
