Rosewater Visions

DAY 25 — 31-day #lovelife challenge.

“Whatever you love, you are.” ~Rumi

The perfume stops me dead in my tracks.

I feel joy

Happiness

Like her arms are around me

Showing me her garden

Telling me all the names.

White, JFKs for our President

Pink, Bellaromas

Yellow, St Patricks

Red, Eternities.

I’ve been away for a while.

The yard is blooming springtime.

Roses, rosewater that distinct

Smell

Takes me to my Grandmother Dorothy

Dorothea, actually

Which I learned from ancestry.com

On her birth certificate.

In my mind I am back to

Michigan

When her rose garden

Began to bloom.

How she wore rosewater.

Driving from the airport

And getting out of the car

It hit me like a wave.

And I could see her.

And know the gift of what it feels

Like to be at one of the places

You love and have loved.

To be home.
