The Woman in White

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Late on summer evenings

once traffic had ceased for night

she’d walk the gardens all alone

the woman dressed in white

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The moonlight’s glow mirrored

on alba petals spread wide

many perfumed with fragrant grace

that she’d gather to bring inside

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Before dawn’s dew had vanished

well hidden behind her hedge

she’d stroll again in her white night-coat

with a silk scarf covering her head

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yet ne’er during full daylight

was the woman in white to be seen

though the gardeners came to do the chores

all was still and serene

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Her neighbors sometimes wondered

about the strange hours that she kept

But she dare not leave her ill lover’s side

except for when he slept

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They say she loved her flowers

like children of her heart

But her dedication to her love

showed he’d won the greater part

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

His ashes he wanted scattered

over the lilies by the door

so his presence could watch over her

as he’d always done before

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve since heard outlandish rumors

that I thought could not be right

until I peeked into the garden

to see him with the woman in white.

I believe there will be a grand reunion in a garden lit up by a Presence more pure than light itself.

Pure Light Blessings ~ Wendy

There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light.
