the art of roses

nemesistic bloodlines,

corpuscle to corpuscle,

blue ribbon thornies.

rose bush blossoms


thrive – here to there.

tiny tea hybrids,

climbing grandifloras,

gardeners' surprises.


pasteurized heirlooms,

english blends, and old

garden lore - cultivated

in hard soil vintage pots.


a few ramblers, rugosas,

sweet surrenders, and Grand

Thomas's. even veteran’s honor.

ground cover, a black baccara,


germinations. an ill-formed

original double-red knockout,

removed from iridescent safety.

their well fashioned arboretum.


flourished a rogue non-

thorny. seeded. rooted.

in high-centered, double,

bloomed resonance.


the art of roses.

Splendid picture and poem, Donna
Reviewed by Emile Tubiana 5/19/2010
Dear Donna, I am very happy about your kind visit to my Den. In turn I visited your Den and your achievement are quite impressive. I am very happy to find your poem "high-centered double blooms", particularly since I have a garden and I love growing flowers.
I love flowers, not in bouquets
Alive, not cut in any ways
I care for them, give them room
In return they show me their bloom.
Love Emile

A beautiful rose just as you are, Donna...I've seen your poetry over the years bloom into beautiful petals in literary waters, and I've seen you write about thorny's always a pleasure to read your intellectual work...I'm proud to be in your garden DQ~
