Gypsy's Photo Gallery



Joe Haynie

The withering rose,
Its outer petals dropping occasionally in ones or twos,
Retains yet much of its former beauty

Reverting almost to its bud-like beginnings
Yet, within, no longer the mere springing of possibility
With heart now nectar-filled and bursting—its early promise fulfilled

And when the last petal drops silently
And is lifted away by the gentle Breeze of Heaven
Its subtle sweet scent lingers long in the night
