Sacred Touches

Roses of the field whisper divine poetry,
but you must listen carefully to hear it
because noise from the wheels of progress
drowns out everything that sings.

You love the roses – so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses!
Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and red
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!
~Edited poem by George Elliot

He(the Lord) will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. ~Psalm 91:4  ✝

  1. Beautiful poetry and poems. It is rose season, isn’t it?.

    • It’s rose season in Texas and these are from Natalie Scarberry’s garden. Our roses won’t be in bloom until late May or June here in Central Maine, but our daffodils are exquisite right now. Natalie’s blog, Sacred Touches, is one of my favorites. She always gifts us with bountiful beauty. Thanks so much for stopping by, Diana! ❤

  2. Yes, I love the beauty of Natalie’s posts.

  3. Thanks for the reblog, Bette! 🙂 ❤

  4. Thanks for this, Bette. My husband is busy planting knockout roses this year!

    • Sounds awesome, Noelle. We’re transplanting about 50 shoots from our old-fashion yellows out along the back field. I so love roses. Have a glorious day! ❤

  5. This is a beautiful post. We have a lot of knockout roses in the front yard and in the back by the patio. In the front, we have edged the knockouts with drift roses. When they bloom they are spectacular.

  6. Another beautiful post from Natalie that was to good not to be shared. So glad to stopped to enjoy it I do love roses and Natalie’s are spectacular. Sounds like your garden is too! ❤

  7. Lovely thoughts on roses, Bette. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
