After the Blossom Fades

Each blossom fades
And petals drift away
The rose bush begins renewal
Flowers beginning life anew
As they decay within
Fertile black loam

  1. A beautiful reminder of the circle of life, Linda. I’m so glad to have you back. Hope you are feeling better. Do you think you had the virus this winter? I’ve been meaning to ask you. ❤

    • I think I may have. It was in September and I was sicker than I have ever been in my life. The doctor didn’t know what it was. And then 2 months later, the heart situation started. Years ago, I had swine flu and that was a piece of cake compared to what I had in September. ❤️

      • The more I read about the virus and it’s aftermath and what it does to our bodies… yikes. I wonder if you should be tested for the antibodies. That would at least give you a starting point going forward. I’m just glad that you’ve recuperated. There is so much they don’t know. Be safe. Huge hugs coming to you. ❤
