Seize the Day


One of the most tragic things I know about human nature,


Is that all of us tend to put off living.


We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden,


Just over the horizon,


Instead of enjoying the roses
that are blooming
outside our windows today.

    1. Hello Ash, yes they are roses, part of a huge wild rose bush and the only rose that will grow without too much fuss in my garden. I love it because it loves me, and continues to bloom all Summer long and into Fall :)
