Flowers In My Mum’s Garden

Flowers in my mum’s garden
Bring to mind
A former time
When my grandfather grew roses.

I remember the scent
Of roses in his garden.
And my attempt
To make perfume.

In youth
Few engage with age.
And the truth
That roses,
Are gone so soon.

      Thanks for commenting, Vivienne. I remember some kind of liquid being mixed with the rose petals. But, sadly it didn’t work. I was interested to read that you also had a similar experience. Kind regards, Kevin
