Poetry is a reflection of creativity and imagination to evoke a world of thoughts and feelings like the subtle element of the rose. Take yourself on a sentimental journey to a beautiful place, time or experience.
If only we could be like a flower. What is within the rose that has made poets sing the praise of their beauty and magnificence?
Neither language nor Nationality has ever been a barrier in the expression of love that the rose expresses. It shares its petals and its perfume, without rivalry.
Petals communicate as they unfold with perfect balance – they are the messengers of love.
Poetry creates an awareness connecting the form and purpose of the words expressed, felt, and sensed as flowing harmony. Light and sound allow our senses to be deeply moved which can elevate the living spirit. These roses shown alongside poetry create a playful synergy as you emerge yourself on a sentimental journey.
A Book Of Poetry Inspired By The Romance Of The Rose
"Congratulations on writing a book with the most incredible photographs of outstanding quality showing all the facets of the rose. Sincerely, David Ruston, President Emeritus of the World Federation Of Rose Societies".
"I purchased Juliana’s book ‘Romancing the Rose’ book for my mom’s 86th birthday present. I am from Canada and it’s too cold in Alberta to grow roses successfully. So now living on the Gold Coast Queensland, I joined the Gold Coast Rose Society to learn how to successfully grow them.
Juliana’s book is so full of beautiful photos of various roses that I thought it would be a lovely birthday present for my mom who has everything.
Exhibiting my roses that day, I won the novice section and my class, so these certificates were included in the book, that was also inscribed by Juliana. So ‘Romancing the Rose’ went off to Canada for her birthday on December 7.
In Canada, December is in the winter season and it was a freezing day of around - 28°. When I phoned her later that day, she was in tears of gladness. She spent the day marveling at all the wonderful pictures as the book was so informative and the pictures so beautiful.
I felt happy to have blessed her even though we now live so far apart." 😊
