5-7-5 on this symbol along the Cherokee Trail
Haiku on the Cherokee Rose
denoting 'trail where they cried'
God's gift of comfort

An abbreviated tribute to this lovely wild rose which grows in profusion along the 'Trail of Tears'. Legend says that so many babies and childre were lost on this horrific march from the Cherokee home in Georgia, in November 1838. God caused these wild roses to spring up everywhere a mother's tear fell to encourage the mothers go go on. My thanks to nonarom for the beautiful photo, and to you for reading.Pays one point and 2 member cents.
