Let thy garments be white...(Go thy way with joy and a merry heart...for God now accepts thy works.) Ecclesiastes 9: 8-7

While all the rest are pink...
A new hollyhock opened today
It made me stop and think...
Maybe it bloomed simply to say
"I came here..... like none other....
Wearing blossoms of pure white
In memory of your dear mother...
Whose name Helen meant light.."

Mother, you would be 105
Today If you were still alive...
A long life you spent on earth,
From the day of your birth
Ere' God took you away in 2011,
To join with others in heaven...
Poetry by me AJP

    Thank you very much for the comments...I was so surprised later on this afternoon, the white flower had closed its blossoms like it was taking a nap while the pink flowers remained open..
