Winters passed and seasons changed
She breathed within her range
The warmer breeze of Spring
Filled her with the joy it brings

Walking calmly
She proceeded without hurry
Looking to see what blooms
Today will fill her room

Not too far
Almost torn apart
A familiar bloom
Lay completely in gloom

Trampled and wilted
Her branches almost dead
Once again her tears dropped
This time it didn't stopped

She picked her up with care
Saving her roots from the tear
Thank you for picking me up
It muttered while leaves flop

Hush my 'little bud'
Bloom again and be proud
In my garden just like in my heart
You'll always have a spot

This is a beautiful painting. I tried to paint not so long ago at at place called Sips n Strokes. The artist gave you directions through out the class. It was a lot of fun. check out my blog and I posted pictures of what we painted. You have a great talent. I am jealous...I was not given this talent.

Thanks for sharing it Darlene. You guys did a terrific job on your paintings. I am certain you are equally gifted in some other aspects of your life. Cooking perhaps? :) It's a skill I'm still learning.
