Solitaire, A Rose

The morning rose you touched still stands.
And see how sweet, how sweet this one,
this single one it smells when in the sun?

And each petal falls,
once full when open is now gone.
Each single one by they are young,
like all the rest now gone.

Rare such flowers once were loved,
when blind are cast aside.
To see each loved each every one.
But one not loved by any one.

And loved is this a single one.
is played by hand then picked,
by wind and gone.

Jane Seymour played Solitaire in Live and Let Die

Definition: Solitaire is any tabletop game which one can play by oneself or with other people. In the USA, it may refer to any card game played by oneself; the British use the term Patience to refer to solitaire with cards. The term “solitaire” is also used for single-player games of concentration and skill using a set layout of tiles, pegs or stones rather than cards. These games include Peg solitaire and Mahjong solitaire. Most solitaire games function as a puzzle which, due to a different starting position, may (or may not) be solved in a different fashion each time.

Silently I stepped around
not to disturb anyone with a sound.
Just to enjoy the morning silence
where my mind could wander around.

Enjoy the peace in the air
without intruding voices everywhere
and enjoy the solitaire
that the morning held there.
