With Clouds and Roses

Rosa rugosa, a one-time garden escapee, now naturalised. 2nd June 2020

You smashed into me with clouds and roses
Shattering my composure
Now the coloured fragments of my heart
Becomes a kaleidoscope, enchanted

23 words written for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt: Kaleidoscope

  9. I meant Opportunity knocked for you! You have such great photos. Would you like to share one or two at the Saddle Up Saloon?

    • I did see you’re looking for graphics. I’ll take a closer look. But do I or don’t I, I thank you for the thought and the offer πŸ™‚

      • I love your photos. Also I thought of you for an upcoming saloon event. I want to have a virtual walking tour where people provide a picture from a regular or favorite walk and maybe a short poem that goes with it. This is something you do every week at your site, but I’d like to at least link to one of your walks.

      • I can’t commit right at this moment. But I can say you’re welcome to link to any of my posts, photos, poems, anything. I’ll give it more thought tomorrow. Right now I’ve got tweets coming through. DMs coming through, emails, comments… some days are like that. And I need to go do the washing up!
