There stood a white rose
Tender in nature
Untouched without blemish
Hidden love would await her
A crimson red rose
Exotic and tempting
Appeared by her side
So brazen unrelenting
Her petals were embraced
By the crimson red rose
So gentle with care
She began to blush
Cautious not to malign
Her petals of purity
The crimson rose refrained
From the act of vulgarity
Instead declared true love
With her blessing assured
A vow bounded by love
Sealed absence a kiss
True love in its purity
The White Rose in her bliss

Knowledge, wisdom, action - a triad for intelligent existence.

Knowledge - the seed of intelligence
Wisdom - the understanding of knowledge
Action - setting into motion

P.S. in the absence of any, the structure fails.
Silence speaks volumes
A glance in someone’s direction
A sorrowful look in someone’s eyes
A poorly hid snicker
Something simple as the touch of a hand
Can tell a story
A story worth so much more
Than words
Because the emotions
Transmitted through total silence
Are the most powerful
And words are nowhere near enough
To convey such intense emotion

Though silence is not filled with words,
It is filled with feeling
Maybe people
Should communicate through silence
More often
Inspired by the poem “telling” by ap.
if ever

you don’t


like you have a home,

pull me close,

wrap your arms around me,

rest your head on my chest,

close your eyes,

and feel the warmth of the fireplace

resonating from within my heart.

“The truest friends are always near,
no matter what your mind might fear”


It matters not the time or place,
the hour or the year
The many obstacles you face
of endless mounting fear

Troubles that do plague your mind
nor shadows where you weep
Hidden truths you often find
in memories locked deep

Countless worries that remain
so very hard to share
Mirrors to reflect the pain
in eyes afraid to stare

Whenever sorrow grips your hand
and tries to pull you through
Please listen as I say these words,
“I’m always here for you”
I have stumbled
I have fallen
With an empty soul
A heart and mind
searching for a way
I saw your hand
Reaching out to me
Unsure, nothing to lose
I took it
You picked me up
Now we walk together
As you hold my hand
You guide me along my way
You whisper to me
Follow me and you will know the truth
Finding my way with God. Searching for peace for my spirit and soul.
