Warm Summer's breeze
A Wihtered Yellow Rose
Rode silent thermals
Swirling onto my lawn.

Just minutes past
The beauty of a dawn
From a nearby garden
Withered and dry.

Within my hand
I hold her dear
As I remember
My love for her
Spans for years.

The brilliant yellow
Of it's wondrous past
Has gone now to the heaven
Of hues
Brown and bridle
I still hold her, within my grasp.

I feel life,
The bridle softening
Her thorns hardening
The yellow rejuvenating
As I open, to expose
The miracle within my hand.

Her beauty I hold
Deep in my heart
Her image I keep
Eternally in my mind
Where the colors, of the rainbow
All reside.

Very enjoyable...

Her beauty I hold
Deep in my heart
Her image I keep
Eternally in my mind
Where the colors, of the rainbow
All reside.
