Shadow Shot Sunday-Nov 29, 2009


( Go here for other Shadow Shots! )

My new header is a picture of a little Christmas basket my mom made for me many years ago for one of my Christmas gifts! I've kept it all these years and still put it out each year when I decorate.

While making this header and putting it on I was remembering a basket I made of Mom's last roses...and thought it might work for my shadow shot!

Mom’s Last Roses

These are Mom’s last roses.
I kept a little part
of all the roses given,
from every grieving heart.

I handled them so gently
and dried them - as you see.
I found the perfect basket-
arranged them carefully.

I found the sweetest ribbon,
and made this fancy bow-
attaching it, expertly!
It had to be - just so!

It had to turn out special,
and easily convey…
how much I do still love her
and miss her every day!

These are Mom’s last roses.
They’ll always be a part
of all my memories of her
and the sorrow in my heart.

Nice shadow shot of those lovely dried roses that are filled with memories.

That's a beautiful poem ~ I have trouble writing poetry.

Your header is beautiful, dear Junie, and I love the story behind it. I also love how you have kept your mom's last roses in that basket, it's such a wonderful idea. Your poem is also very touching. xoxo
