One Rose

One red rose for you

This garden now in mine

 

 

 

One rides the tentative droplets

Within these petaline pearls

 

I seek the one who speaks

In flowers tongue mystique


I know him when I feel him

It is not sight that sees

 

I know I cannot own this bloom

His art for more than I

 

One passage on the lily’s stamen

Will last this time past life

 

 

One moment in the roses thorn

Will ever deeper seek

 


It is not blood

It is not sweat

It is not pausing breath


It is knowing ……
