The Rose

Virgin innocent

The world has deflowered you

Yet beauty still blooms

Delicate petals

Will fall and return to dust

As your spirit soars

My name is Janet, and I'm located in southern California. My blog is rather eclectic, featuring art, photography, and a little poetry, as well as short pieces of fiction (now and then). I also share about my walk of faith, and my journey through recovery from alcoholism.

  1. Janet, I just read this poem again, and it still hits me hard. Short, sweet and true of our life’s journey. This poem is love and a hug. Simple and beautiful. Well done ❤
