Prima Facie - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

My black rose,
I like to caress
your soft petals.
savoury pollen
stolen my soul.
like to jump
over the fence.
Oh! the gardener with the spade
is crueller than the prickly shrubs.
I like to hide in the garden secretly
my little haughty
naughty bee request a nod.

    Honest emotion, skillful imagery. A very provocative poem, Nimal.
