Pressed Rose


The eyes of a poet,

Often look inward,

Then outward in complexity

Of positive and negative confusion

In poetic diverse shades of vision,

Where the fission and friction

Sets to motion word compositions

Among divergent depositions

Weathering time's hourglass illusion.


We are the negativity

Of our mirrored souls shadows

Traversing time's haunted graven words

In reflections shattered

Or remembered,

On a wilted rose page of Uni-Verse.


“To be” is that not the question?

Do we not bear, the heartbeat’s verse

Deep inside the very core of one’s soul?

The seed of germination of a Uni-Verse

Spreading enlightenment might upon wings,

Where the cerebral meets the celestial

Hemispheres of an outer expansive universe.


“To Be” free is that not the right?

That bares Free Verse reign down on birthrights

Wail that sails breezes

In questioning Free Speech.

For is not Truth, the ultimate salvation,

That represents a society’s foundation?

That we are Constitution founded

Upon those concrete driven words

With sword points of factual statements.


“To Be” is it not a pressed rose memory?

Where we kneel and pray postmortem

That life’s existence was not a shallow grave

Of procrastinated promises, so hollow cast

Inside would, could, and should have been’s.


But where the spring bubbled in dong things

With a creative bounce radiance of endless energy,

Where minds are engaged in full mental wing dimensions

Sharing a divine dynamic spectrum of self purpose

That shared compassion with other pressed roses,

Within the Phoenix of America.
