Rafael Cazares

(8/3/89 / Fresno, CA)

A Rose

Pondering on a Rose/ A delicate flower/ Crimson it glows/ Quietly through the hour/ It is adored by passersby/ Walking on sunny afternoons/ It is the blush of a little girl shy/ When her lover professes under the light of the moon/ And how fragrant its petals/ Elegant its form/ Rising toward the sky/ Indifferent to the ferocity of the Storm.

Fond to the human eye/ Felt by the human soul/ A passionate harmless life/ Amid the crude & cold.

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
