Yet another one to an incredibly special lady. Happy Valentine's Day! Inspired by Al Swanson's "A Rose Alone By Sailing Boats." And... especially inspired by an incredibly special and gracious lady.

In worn and torrid waters,
a single rose there seen -
red -
and alone;

among the tattered wreckage
from battlements

yet unparalleled in its
deliciously-scented beauty;
sanctified in its aloneness,
fraught --
with subtly irresistible magnetism

eyes drawn to petal's purpose;

into the realm of the thorn;


pricked -- by sudden,
fatal beauty

dying with indescribable pleasure

within the crux
of her concentric

Hey Jeff,

Wen I first saw this laced into the comment, I said, this is a not a comment this is beautiful poetry, and while reading, it ust got so deep, these ideas you spell forth; this -

eyes drawn to petal's purpose;

was about as good as you could get, for the picks of the rose (herself) there so felt,

and I thoght the rest of the poem dealt with our getting lost in such - beauty, ie the rose and her stem just gobble us alive

Well done,

prime beauty, !! al
