A Bud Within

Pink, red and yellow, three roses for me to receive
Gentleness, love, truth, I did perceive
Each a bloom as days gone by
Gentleness and love flower and die
Truth prevails in bloom array
A bud within holds this very day
Its message I heed in delight
TRUTH, the bringer of gentleness, love and light.

Rose Marie Raccioppi

A Bud Within, THE WIND AND THE WILLOW, Rose Marie Raccioppi, PublishAmerica, 2008


  1. Beautiful. From the flower to the words written.
    May the bud burst forth with JOY !

  2. It was amazing how once each of the three roses were named, each became its own universe. The yellow rose named TRUTH lasted beyond expectation and from within a new bud emerged. I was moved to tears. It was received as a divine message and a sought affirmation. The poem was written in joyful realization that TRUTH was to be my ever present guide.
