The Rose: Poetry Series

The Rose

Each Petal slowly tumbles

until the last one remains

alone and cold, with no others

to add to it’s beauty.

The ground swallows the petals

and slowly demolishes the wonder

that was created over time.


Lovely white petals shrink

and shrivel

just as dreams being shattered

eroding away.

Before they began to wither

they were beautiful, each softly

colored petal painted with dew

when dawn awoke.

The aroma was so fresh, so sweet

that even the hummingbirds wanted a taste.

But that is all over now, the thorny bush is all that 

remains, 

the butterflies and birds come no more,

the last petal has fallen.

Dalea Faulkner is a Gold Leader in doTERRA, has been using essential oils for 31 years, and has branded herself as “That Crazy Oil Lady”. Growing up with all things herbal and natural from her Mother’s european upbringing, Dalea naturally connected with doTERRA and found it to be incredibly fulfilling to help and support others in this way. She feels that "Essential Oils are nature’s gift to us, to support us in our journeys as we walk through this beautiful life.”

In addition to growing and supporting her doTERRA community, Dalea loves to spend time with her Husband Brien, Son Daen, and Golden Retriever Cooper. Her family relies on the emotional and physical benefits of essential oils to support them when, well, life happens! It is her soul mission, in this big, beautiful, life to bring healing to the hearts of the world and create positive change on a global level.

In the near future, Dalea would like to create a non-profit organization that supports service members transitioning to civilian life and provide them with much needed care. She dreams of people all over this world, waking with the same joy in knowing, that they have these empowering, natural solutions at their fingertips, on a daily basis.⠀
