Your petals are wilting,

Still soft with sun

And rain that graced you

In soft mists and torrent showers

In your youth,

Survived,

Though the heat was strong

your fragrance held its own

Sweet with knowledge,

Heart flushed with beauty,

and wild with impulse,

You blossomed,

Opened,

Despite your thorns,

Despite pain,

Despite sorrow,

Your touch remained gentle,

Delicate resonance,

I inhale you,

Breathing in

All that you are,

All that I am.

    “I inhale you,
    Breathing in
    All that you are,
    All that I am”
    … ahh! Fantastic work – as always.
