Vibrant Bloom, Rose…the name of love
Blood red, velvet layered plumes,
curled in symmetry’s loving loom,
enticing petals, opened to sweet sun’s dew,
as diamond pearls do cling
to morning’s breath,
and glisten as the light assumes
its morning rise and depth.
And as the light does rise
and shards splay out across the sky,
those petals open further still,
its yellow seeded heart a thrill,
that morning chill that greets
its sombre awakening
to nod to day’s beginning.
Then as those diamonds fade
to morning light,
and stretching petals absorb the warmth,
that bloom just stands tall, radiant,
and delivers joy from gloom,
and life assumes those thorns,
her protective hands in waiting.
So none shall spoil this beauty,
this adoring red vibrant bloom,
because it sets a heart to wonder,
of loving thoughts and romance attuned
to beauty’s glorious splendor,
beneath the sun’s deft hand,
in this, a garden wonderland.
