Illustration by Rose Perez
Desert in my heart –
parched and barren without you.
Let me drink of love.

Thanks so much, Mich! Nothing quite as arid as a desert in ones heart. Keep hydrated with love 🙂
Lovely work, Rose. If I were a hopeless romantic, this would make me melt. I am sure I could woo anyone with these beautiful lines. Have a pleasant Friday. xo

I appreciate your visits and comments a lot, SB. Your words are thoughtful and meaningful. Most of my stories and poems are quite dark that it’s refreshing to be sweet once in awhile 😀 Have a wonderful weekend, my creative friend! ❤
Thank you. ❤️❤️
Excellent illustration, too
You are an amazing illustrator, and your lovely comment is precious to me, Sir Knight. 🙂
Moving words, beautifully illustrated. xxx

It touches me so that you read my work. A million thanks, Paula. xoxo
That’s such a romantic idea. You know, when it rains in the desert, suddenly the place comes alive with thousands of beautiful flowers.
It’s reassuring to know that should the rain not fall in my desert, I can always turn to your wondrous blog. Thank you for the beautiful image of flowers bursting into bloom as I burst into happiness reading your amazing posts. 🌺 🌻 🌹
You’re very welcome, Rose. Love the flower icons in your reply, by the way. Those are very great. All I can offer in return is a nice smiley! 😀
I’m glad you enjoyed the flowers, BunK! Here’s some wind to go with your lovely, windy post that I enjoyed so much — 🌬 💨. Thanks for the nice smiley!! xo
It’s a wonder and a pleasure to read your words and see your art.
What more can I possibly ask for after reading such a beauty of a comment? I shall be floating on air all day. Thank you!
Wow and wow!
Ah yes if only one could
To bottle the Essence
Of ones love
what a wonder
For those long
The Sheldon Perspective
Mmm, I’d rather keep a jar of your words with me on my lonesome journeys. Many thanks for your poetic friendship — I do treasure it!
Just as long as you come to visit
I will forget the pain
More on your presence
You always make me happy
With your comments
Oh Rose don’t get me started
today is not a good day
It was till I took this new medicine
The all hell broke loose
The Sheldon Perspective
Thanks Shel! I love visiting. Oh, so are you saying that the new meds are making you feel better?
NICE ONE ROSE.. This reminds me of a Bjork song 😀
I’m glad it does — Bjork is quite the colorful singer! Thank you Josh. 🙂 xo
Lovely illustration… and with your words, drink of love. Great lines, Rose.
Cheers to the drink of love, Iris! Thanks so very much. 🍷 🍷 💋
Cheers, Rose! You’re most welcome. ❤
A lovely thought and illustration.
Hi JC! Your words mean the world to me. Thank you!
You are welcomed… jc
A great and meaningful illustration!
The haiku reminded me of Tennyson’s line, “I will drink life to the less”…
You are a poet by nature, Rose… ❤
Ah, you make my heart go pitter patter! Thank you, dear Mani, for an amazing compliment. I’m touched❣️
I love the last line. 😃💕😃
I was gonna write: “Let me drink your blood,” but I promised to behave just for this post. Lol! Thank you, darkling Alan. ❥ ツ ღ ☻
You’re a true romantic
Ha! More like a true lunatic. 😀
Wow, Rose! Beautiful both poem and picture.
Have a great weekend!
Princess Monica! I humbly ask for your forgiveness as I’ve been swamped these past few weeks. Your friendship is one I treasure despite my lack of consideration.
You’re a far sweeter person than I. Thank you for your kind words, and best wishes for a lovely weekend. 💝 🎀 ♕
Poor parched heart! I hope it is soon filled with love (before that bird gets to it).
Haha! My vulture is quite hungry when it comes to matters of the heart — I hope so, too, Merril! 😀 Thank you very much. xo
I like to think a parched heart just means its essence is concentrated. Like instant coffee. Or beef jerky.
I like your POV, Chuckie! I’ll take the instant coffee, thanks. I’ll pass on the beef jerky, though. I’ve known too many of those in my lifetime. 😀
Reblogged this on Ancien Hippie.
Much thanks Penney! 🌹
Thank you for writing a great blog!
Sublime, and an artist too. No end to your talents.
Oh, thanks Stephen! I’m honored by your kind words. 💗
sending a smile
and a straw 🙂
LOL! Very funny. Thanks!
Thanks dear Morgan!
Drink up! Enjoy the love ❤
Lovely thought! Thanks Christy. I shall!! ❤
Don’t drink the love…you may get love poisoning!
Love poisoning is very real and is known as Lovcus Toxicus. You don’t want that! It makes you cry incessantly, loss of appetite and can’t sleep, and some have died of a broken heart. 😱
Sounds like fun!
This haiku is sure to quench the thirst of a parched heart! 🙂
Let’s hope so! Thirsty hearts are very restless. 🙂
Love your illustration, Rose. I wonder who is that patiently waiting vulture? 😉 I imagine your words are not desperate, they are inviting, and the drink of love is on the way to you 🙂
Thank you, my lovely friend! I’m sorry for my late response as I’ve had some personal challenges as we all do from time to time. Make mine a double drink of love please 🙂 xo
Rose, I hope everything is all right by now. Many hugs and good wishes! ❤
Your hugs and good wishes have helped, Inese! I’m soaring again. Thank you for the lovely juju. 😍
Always force yourself to think positive, sunshine. Force, and I mean it. Then a good luck will find its way to you .xxxx
Wise words I’ll take to heart! ❤
Looooovvvee this beautiful work
Thank you very much!
Loved your drawing the first time I saw it and was curious the poem that was going to get along with it. Both are beautiful, Rose. Thank you. : )
Your kind words thrill me, Francis. I’m happy to know you enjoyed my art and poem. ❤️
The illustration and Haiku fit perfectly. Beautiful imagery is so few words.
You’re welcome. 🙂
Hi, Rose. Pretty poem and wonderful artwork.
Thank you very much, Randy! It’s nice to make your acquaintance 🙂
😀 Thank you! You too, Rose.
