"Captured sunsets rising reaching for sky"

Rose Riddle

A single rose bloomed and then there were two
Seeing the second one I thought of you
When next I noticed in a moment more
Roses surrounded me two three and four

And now the vine runs red nor can I count
Captured sunsets rising reaching for sky
The universe expands beyond amount
Past figure and sum to totality

Blooming in spring it surprises and I
Am utterly transfigured by a rose
Forgotten long ago and left to die
It whispers the secrets of life to me:

How everything grows (as every rose knows)
How now is all there can be (no "to be")
How looking ahead or looking behind
Makes fools fall down because they have gone blind

Exceptional write steve and one to be published for sure, sparkles with the clarity of an artists eye looking towards the heaven's majesty and equating with ones own life and world around.
