The Mature Rose

 

Rose

img_3180

Gently reaching upwards
Driven by the deepest thirst
Reveling in the nurturing rays

Silken petals drape
Curl and seductively pout
She knows she is a lure!

Every entranced glance
Every gentle stroke
Serves to excel her beauty

Mesmerized by her own fragrance
Kindly bestowed from within
She recognizes her gift

Preoccupied she seems
Envied by the loveless
Yet magnanimous she loves

Why oh why!
Does she tempt you so
Day and night, night and day

For she knows nothing else
Than love is all
For onlooker and herself both.

Be the rose, be the weed
The inner fragrance of love
Is the same for all

Dig past the facades
Gleam through all the layers
For you too, are your very own rose!

Bloom from Love

Gloriously my heart opens
What can I possibly fear

You shine your love
So direct and radiantly

Through the many miles
Scaling the galaxy

Tireless, relentless
Never to be absent

Whether a ray or blast
With clouds attempting to overcast

How could I not
Be ready to receive

Each day I bloom
My core coming through

In all my glory
It is you I have come to know

You teach to be constant
Stray not from the focus

Each day making the effort
Is so partĀ of the play

My beauty is the reflection
The peace, the love
You shine my way

Timeless Beauty

Timeless beauty
Impeccable design

Handcrafted delicately
Gracefully balanced

This is your form
This is your nature

With each one of your breaths
Come to this closer

When clarity unfolds
It permeates your all

With the flow of your pencil
Dance out the Divine

Be it words, be it illustration
The song is just the same

One of endless love and beauty!
