A Lone Rose

lone rose
too much rain
has fallen on
the purest flower,
still standing
throughout winter,
this lone rose that
grows and forces thorns
into all hands that
try to touch,
too much rain
has fallen on
the purest flower
that I admire most
in this wilting
garden of Eden,
I’m dreaming from afar
with all desire to be
close to her
and gently find
the precise point on
her smooth defiant stem
and pick her from
those drying roots,
away from winter’s
harshest truths
and back to where she’s
warm and watered,
glowing bright and
filled with life.
