Bouquet of Roses

Roses--Tanka poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2015

Saw this beautiful rose bush growing along the sidewalk as I was on my way to the library.  I was reminded of the quote “Take Time to Stop and Smell the Roses”.  I did that and also took time to photograph them.  Beautiful addition to my summer day. 🙂

Sleep Writing

In sleep
My mind writes verse
I wish I could capture
Such beautiful poetic lines
Awake

Tonight I fell asleep before writing my poem to post. I kept dreaming of poems and writing some in my sleep. Yet, when I woke up I could not remember any of them. I wish I could have,  as in my dreams they seemed to be very good. Thus, the reason I wrote this poem.
