Traces of Red
Do we still hear nature’s whispers,
when traces of sunshine fade into ashes by greed?
Hold on to the scent of sweet roses and companions,
or countryside beauty will be our eternal loss.

Oh this is lovely - very very beautiful and very wise! I love the musical lilt to the words, I especially adore the first line - a fantastic question and one that lingers with me.

Thank you for sharing
Take care

I loved the third line, "Hold on to the scent of sweet roses and companions."
