At the Edge of a Petal

The dawn chorus trills arias in duet
Not a dulcet tone morning to forget
Rose shot with purl

A white wedding dress shimmers in sunlight
The blond tresses tied, a threaded delight
Rose petals curl

The fresh flush of a virgin: prescribed writ
The keen purity evident on soffit
Rose throws to hurl

The serene still reflection in mirror
Belie fervid brow - tester an error?
Rose bud unfurls
