Royal Splendor

Roth Poetry

IMG_6856 (2)
Though life took its toll and age unraveled before her
She held her head high crowned with royal splendor
Containing a sweetness outlasting the superficial
Beauty from within crowning life’s aging body
Where one could draw nectar from her soul
the honey of life

Today at d’Verse, De Jackson asked us to write a Quadrille of exactly 44 words using any form of the word crowned.This is a zinnia head, from my flower garden, that has lost all its petals, yet continues to feed the bee that comes for nectar. An example for us all.
