Poetry Potluck Blogfest

Jingle Poetry
I'm using the theme of Rosemary/ Remembrance as a Monument to what has been lost:

  1. I left a Rosemary that I loved. She grew right outside my kitchen door in Hawaii. When we left Oahu she had to stay behind. I hope whomever is living in my house now is taking good care of her.

  2. this is a toughie, you are making me think. I have heard that remembrance is good for the soul. In my family we just try to block things out (very healthy eh?)

  7. Lovely poem! Makes me think of people who were part of my everyday life, and who I now miss, though at the time I knew them, I did not consider their importance.

    I also love the presentation of this poem! :)

  9. A beautiful poem.

    As well as the symbolic meaning, I have to say I just love the fresh clean fragrance of rosemary. I have a huge (and I do mean huge) rosemary bush in my garden and try and give sprigs to anyone who visits who looks like they might have a fondness for lamb. Hopefully then they'll remember me fondly as they enjoy their evening meal. Ooops, now I'm making myself hungry.

  13. Thank you so much everyone. This was an incident that actually happened. I saw the rosemary bush, exclaimed to my hubby who thought I'd seen our former neighbour and then we laughed at the ambiguity of the name. The rest of the poem followed on from my reflections of the friend I once knew. :O)
