Swaying Purples

I don’t reblog, but this lovely piece written for me by my blogger-best-friend, Maria, is worth sharing with you. ❤ ❤ ❤

Believe me, it's heart melting. ❤

Thank you dear, Maria! I cannot thank you enough because you just know what I love (purple, tulips and your words). ❤



Cup-shaped blooms
Loved by a Rose
Acres of verdant fields
Swaying purple grows
Of grace and regal
It’s beauty shows
‘Neath the cerulean skies
Simplicity glows.

A flower of love—
Undying and passionate
No wonder why a Rose
Fell for a tulips
For she, herlself, is beauty
And grace intertwined
She glows in simplicity
Sways with love ‘neath the skies.
