The Peony

Folklore enlaces the flower which further links Peony to the moon. 
It is believed that this flower of sheer romance was created by the 
Goddess of moon to reflect the lustrous shimmer of the moon's beam
 at night. Reflect your deep desire into her eyes as you give her a 
bunch of peony to say softly -- " You are mine " 
 ~ Author Unknown

The Peony
Early morning sun caressed their tight green buds
Gently coaxed to open by coal-black ants, exposing
the delicate tissue of lace-like petals
Their ethereal showy blooms, weigh down the stems,
waving their perfumed fragrance in the air
While gathering sprays, I drink in the depth of colour
And the honey sweet bouquet of my
Favourite English Peony

  1. Oh! You lucky girl!! Peonies are beautiful and rare here in the South. They need the cool temps of the winter to bloom well, and here? Well, we just don't have them.

    I have nursed a peony tree for two years and it has just died....sigh.

    I love the poetry and love the pix....how beautiful!!!!
