lesson from a rose

as wise as it is beautiful

a mystery that undresses slowly

beneath an admirer’s gaze

blooming in each moment that passes

without frivolous concerns of forever

seizing the present with purpose

and vulnerable strength

fierce stems remind me to protect

the magic within as soft petals

whisper in sweet shades of powdery pink:

undress your soul but

keep your thorns sharp

against undeserving hands.”
