Necessary Roses - Poem by Barry Middleton

the blush of the rose brought passion to life
it was no bite of apple wakened Eve

she gazed into that secret well of petals
and knew the sweet aromas of the night

then Adam too was taken by the spell
and learned of desire and ecstasy and roses

beneath the tree of life they did embrace
to bring to earth our passion and disgrace

to bring such beauty to the world
yet mixed with greed and jealousy

for good and evil cannot separate
they co-exist to temp and test out fate

though there are men would ravage every rose
I guard the innocence of roses white

as I seclude a place within my heart
to grow that fragile rose of youth and light

    Wow Sir, what a great write. Read the whole in a single try and was spell bound at the skill of your writing and the amazing imageries.
    To my favourites list Sir.
    10++++ for the sharing.
