We all know a rose is just a rose
but I propose the one above is an
outstanding rose, just ask my nose
for not only its beauty but its scent
is heaven sent,and no one can prevent
me from writing a poem or maybe a tome about a bloom that would grace any room just one more beauty we share on earth how often do we ponder what it's worth?

feast your eyes
upon a rose
makes your head
fill with prose
let the scent
arouse your desire
while the color
 ignites your fire
let the velvet petals
give pleasure
as you stroke them
like a treasure
though they only
last a little while
upon your face
you'll wear a smile

Earth should be appreciated every day!
