another rose…

a white, red veined rose
beckons with invitation
nestled with sharp champions
beautiful beauty, so alluring.

Fingertip caress, tracing
contours fold, softly yield
so delicate, so delightful
the promise of innocence.

Opening for inspection
gift to invading nose
buried deep, intoxicated
drinking deeply of spring.

Perhaps God made beauty
fragile, swiftly passing
that we might never
take her for granted.

Ah... beautiful, beautiful writing Tramp Poet... clear and vivid description coupled with deep, philosophic insight, just as poetry should be.  Personally, I don't know if I agree that beauty is fragile.  What could happen to the rose that would desecrate its beauty?  The only difference is time.     

Fantastic writing, Tramp Poet.  An excellent contribution to Sanctuary.

This is true indeed, and so beautifully said.... and a single rose is indeed more beautiful than a floral display, because it is a poem....while even a parade float full of them is only prose.
