White Roses

evening wind rising at dusk
    in a garden waiting for moonlight
petunias, roses like white brides
    light the garden walk
far off thunder from the Ochocos
    calling to the sultry night

  5. They light the night! Spotlights, beauty aglow better than brides, better than an aisle!

  6. Even though we don't look forward to thunderstorms because they frighten our dog, I love the sound of "far off thunder...calling to the sultry night"! Gorgeous, Lorna.

  8. I like the contrasting image of the white roses against the night, and the sound of thunder rolling in.
