Sunday Morning Rose

Come slowly, Eden!

Lips unused to thee,

Bashful, sip thy jasmines,

As the fainting bee,

Reaching late his flower,

Round her chamber hums,

Counts his nectars --enters,

And is lost in balms!

(Emiliy Dickinson)


Sunday Morning Light

Roses at my kitchen window.

I bought them yesterday
at the farmers' market.
They are true survivors,
they persevered through
days of torrents of rain.

A kind farmer
brought them from Czechia,
and now they brighten
my Viennese kitchen.

May all your Sundays
be filled with light!


  1. Beautiful roses and beautiful poem Merisi.

    The first roses in my garden are starting to bloom today. It is a Sunny Sunday and I love the quiet garden.

    often, I come to visit your blog and I admire the beautiful photos which you realize.

    I invite you to participate in a small short-lived creation on my blog:

  13. Such perfect, pink confections! My roses, while smelling heavenly, have all looked a little ragged this summer. These are wonderful...

    Hope your Sunday was also lovely.

  14. Why do these roses make me think of peaches-and-cream complectioned princesses with sunlight in their golden hair, breathlessly running across a meadow towards thir prince...

  15. Your roses are pure delight and magic, Merisi... I love Emily Dickinson's poetry... *SIGH*... Happy Summer Days :o)

    Sometimes you don't see my comments because I'm always running after the too quick blogger friends (including you, of course)! And I still have a slow connection!!! ;-)
