Camera Lucida ~ “ROSE”

This week’s theme for the Camera Lucida Photo Challenge is “ROSE”

Whenever I hear the word Rose this is what I think of:

My Paternal Grandmother Rose!

My Paternal Grandmother Rose!

This is my Grandmother Rose, my father’s mother.

She is no longer with us but I remember her as a quiet, gentle woman.  She seemed shy and reserved but always pleasant and kind.  As a child I did not see her often as she lived in another state, but I do remember being with her at holidays and weddings.  I see some of her traits in my father, as he too is a gentle, caring soul.

This is my interpretation of Rose..

A Rose by any other name would be Grandmother!!!

A Rose is not kind but she was,

A Rose does not smile but she does.

A Rose has a way

Of making your day,

Whether the Roses are Flowers or Grandmas!
