My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

February 14, 2011 “the flower”


“the flower”


the sensuous curve of the rose petal

as the flower unfurls like a banner

lover’s standard

she opened her heart

her life

her arms

her soul

to the sun

to the rains and the winds

to harsh reality

to the cool sweet mist of dawning

to the warm morning sun

the alluring fragrance of her blooming

was on the breeze

like the strains of a haunting tune

beckoning me to her

there among the thorns

the troubles of life

so beautiful to my eye

clothed in red


velvet red

just out of reach

not unattainable

the desire to feel the soft petals

of her blossoming love


my fingers daring the thorns

risking the bite

the pain

for the chance of a touch

the possibility to hold her in my hand

a dream

a perfect flower

petals upon my bed

my skin

the taste of her

the sweet aroma of the flower

the nectar of some powerful goddess

dripping as the dew

glistening in the pale light of a new day

a new hope

a new promise

of eternal love
