One Rose

October 5, 2006



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 ……
