TRUTH Prevails

Pink, red and white, 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

Abstraction White Rose, 1927, oil on canvas, Georgia O'Keeffe, 1887-1986.


  1. Very beautiful. Also the picture. I have always admired people that can write poetry.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Gentleness, love, and truth -- three qualities much to be admired and desired. I like the way you crafted this one, Rose Marie, with Truth bringing gentleness and love.

  3. Lover of Life, Thanks and I am on for the blog-a-thon for World Oceans Day on June 8th. Great Idea!

  4. Karen, It was amazing how once each of the three roses were named, each became its own universe. The 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.

  5. Oh how beautiful and what a simply lovely painting from Georgia O'Keefe. Thank you for sharing.
