Sunday Muse

 I’m sending you love, joy and peace with this beauty from my garden. Have a wonderful weekend my dear friends, I’ll be back tomorrow for Potluck. oxo


gardenias saturate the day
clothed in their array of lovely white
their fragrance permeates the nose
and far outshines the perfect rose

white gardenias take me there
while I sit upon my chair
and listen to the birds play
in their orchestrative way

I feel blessed to be
alone in my revery
on a white gardenia day
