Blue Rose - "Look Within"

I just haven't had anything good to post lately - but I hope that is about to change as our weather reports are beginning to predict our usual summer time afternoon thundershowers. All of the stuff I have in pots and in the ground is looking dried up and limp even though I have watered them regular for a while. Faucet watering is not the same as rain. I have wanted to plant some new stuff but not in this weather. They would surely die in this weather. So here are some nice words that may lift your spirit - it did mine.

Look Within by White Dove

There is so much beauty in

This wondrous, blue rose

If only we could capture it

Within our very souls

If we could take its beauty

And apply the glow within

Search a little deeper

In the soul beneath our skin

Take what is does stand for

And shed its love abroad

Don't hide the glow within you

But share the love of God

You know you can't touch beauty

Without it rubbing off on you

And spreading it to others

In the kindness that you do

There lies within each one of us

The beauty like this rose

When its used in touching others

Then its beauty overflows

by White Dove

I am having a hard time finding something to post about as well, droopy dead plants is not something people want to read about, and thats about all I have!

Prospero said...

Lovely words, Becca. I hope you'll be planting again soon. How's little Buddy making out in the heat?

Sorry about the heat and hope you'll be posting again soon! I thought I was going to have a heat stroke the other day when we did our road trip up to Flower World. Spent most of the time using their sprayers wetting ourselves down to try and stay cool.
The poem is lovely and the blue rose is beautiful.

It has been hot hasn't it? We finally did a rain dance and now we are complaining about how that turned out!

Things will get better don't get sad. Just post, that will make you fell better. Just look at my silly post on shoes in the street.

Becca, It's been a hot summer for all of us so far.. At least, our weather this week is MUCH better (Mild with less humidity).. Don't know how long it will last --but I'd love to 'bottle' it! ha

The poem is great...I love the lines talking about the beauty rubbing off on us. NEAT!!!!

Hang in there, Friend. The weather WILL improve.

Becca's Dirt said...

Thanks guys - I know it will improve sooner or later - but gotta complain a little.

DP - you are right
Propero - Buddy is fine - he stays indoors with the A/C.
Darsden - it is divine - isn't it.
RG - seems we aren't the only ones feeling the heat these days.

I can feel your pain Becca. My yard is turning crispy. Hope you get some rain.

I hope you do get the rain. It does get old really quick trying to keep everything watered with a hose.
The poem was really pretty, thanks for sharing it!
