The Soul of the Rose

A single rose can be my garden…a single friend, my world.

– Leo Buscaglia –

The Soul of the Rose

“A bower of roses creates a special kind of sacred space, filled with a scent that can connect us to the past. Whether freshly cut and placed in a crystal vase with winter greens, or tumbling out of an old watering can, dried for a Victorian potpourri or the center of an herb filled tussie mussie, the rose connects us to our inner selves, to memories of another time, another place, as past and present merge. A dried pressed rose petal, falling out of a precious book, means someone was once deeply loved. Throughout the ages the rose has symbolized love, life, sexuality and passion, death, the sun, the moon, the heart, the soul, perfection itself. Hafiz, a Sufi poet, calls it the “heart enchanting flower.”” Lucia Bettler shares more in this lovely meditation on the rose. { read more }
