Lenton Rose



A time to reflect,
earth looks forward
to the resurrection,
the lengthening of days.

Tulips spring forth
from their winter's tomb,
bluebirds lift praise songs
in the poplar trees.

Purple and white blossoms
nod their heads
along a stone sidewalk,
gems in a garden.

A girl's tears fell
on the snow,
angels turned them
into the Lenten Rose.

Wishing all my blogger friends a blessed Lent season and very happy Easter!

Great post about the lenten rose. I noticed that mine are in bloom now. I've been watching the evergreen foliage and now the beautiful winter blossoms are awesome, just in time for Easter! Good thing is that the deer don't like to eat them.
