Encounter


WORTHY
X
Don't cling to me
as you take me from the earth,
flattering me about my rosy tint,
x
inhaling my heart
then flinging me into your winter garden,
to read my petals on a wistful day.
x
Don't wrench away a coy bud
I've hidden
beneath a well placed thorn,
x
to give me up,
as if I were a beast impounded
and not a rose.
x
I'll start again
as dreams come into flower,
x
and let the earth embrace
what it comes upon
in me.

Lyn - This was brilliant! I just loved the personification of the rose and your choice of words and phrases.
"read my petals on a wistful day" - Gosh, that's really good!

Hi Alaine-
Thank you very much..and of course I agree with you..about killing a rose!!!

Hi Jeane-
Sometimes words just sort of appear, that's why the writing is so much fun !! I thank you for caring!!

A plea from the rose? An enviromentally friendly poem? Whatever it was, the delivery was great. I loved the flower's voice. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.
