((( Solitare Rose)))


A Solitary Rose 'tis growing...
In a Garden filled to the full with weeds...
With velvet soft petals of 'deep' red...
Today, that red Rose simply bleeds;

'Tis not the thorns of her stems...
Nor the lack of mother nurture nor care...
Its more the torments O' time...eons...
That bleeds out the Rose in despair;

For their 'tis n'er a good outcome...!
For people who practice to do deliberate wrong...! !
Only hope for the flowers that give joy to the Earth...!
For 'tis to this Earthly sod that they truly belong;

    A solitary rose that stands out just like a thistle amidst the
    thorns. Even a thing of beauty may withstand the test of time.
    The roots grows very deep into the earth where the Sun can't
    reach and burn it up. An inspiring write. (Report) Reply

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
