Petaled Perfection.


Cupped in greenery,
......................... it stands tall as 'itself'.
Bud-tight, becoming unfurled
................................. with blushy show,
Bright rose, strongly fragile,
.............................. returns my melting
Sighs with quiet pride of face,
........................................ so knowingly.

Sweet silence colours it
......................... and rich tones vibrate,
The rose holds a beauty
.............from friendship's warm hand.
Dignified more by it's image,
............................................ now fated
To bloom here for me
.............................. as in faraway land.

Impassioned, compelling,
................................ incarnadine rose,
How deep your secret
...................... only providence knows.
