THIS FLOWER                            
                        
                                      
DAILY I WALK THE GARDEN PATH          
THE SMELLS FAMILAR ITS LIFE UNCHANGING
                                      
TODAY I PAUSE A DIFFERENCE BLOOMS      
I SEE THE SHAPE ITS BEAUTY SMILES      
                                      
DRAWN BY ITS TEMPTING FRAGRANCE        
I BREATH THE SWEETNESS OF ITS SCENT    
A POISON IT CONSUMES MY SOUL          
MY LEGS WEAK I LEAVE ITS BEAUTY        
                                      
DAILY I RISK ITS SWEET AROMA          
THE GARDEN IS CHANGED FAMILAR GONE    
                                      
STILL AROUND THE FLOWERS GROW          
I SEE ONLY ONE                        
                                      
WILL I UNDERSTAND ITS POWER            
THIS FLOWER ....
THE ROSE.

  Beautiful, I've been a landscaper half
my life and never heard a rose described
with such love, very nice.

Could your rose be symbolic of passion? Of power? Of love? Of earthly "treasures"? This poem is potent, no matter what the source of the tempting fragrance. Very nice!

Lorelei, Paul, whiskey, Meadowmuse, nate, Seymour... thanks for your comments. As the poet here and not really talking to other poets about my poems before. I'm not really sure about what is prudent. Will it take away from your viewpoint if I tell you what it symbolizes to me. Please give me your input on this anybody.....

Meadowmuse, To me it symbolizes life and our search for Love, we are all just flowers in the garden... and in this love story "Only the Rose" tells the ending.
