In Roman culture, Opal was considered stone of love and hope.
I wonder what it can symbolize a rose in opal colors?
This is my gift for my dear friend David
Happy Birthday, my dear Dragon and may your life be full of love and hope!
FLOWERS IN SUNSET
A golden sky with amber hues,
gives warmth upon approaching night;
clouds drift on like tide water's blue,
and winds do moan in last of light.
Flowers of the field stretch and bow,
their actions tied upon the wind;
a future ever present now,
this field of flowers sleeps again.
Connected to the wind they are,
as fingers bent in fleshy palm;
like hangers, some are bent to far,
to live again in mornings calm.
Such beauty seen against the sky,
from a distance they seem to pose;
on the highway cars are passing by,
glistening in the twilights glow.
Visible no more, the sun sets,
the mighty wind still blows along;
and flowers sleep with no regrets,
enchanted by the winds sweet song…
