Below a Crimson Base

Do you ever

Stop

To think of the characteristics

In a red rose flower?

 

Beautiful

Palette of reds

Silk Petals

Positive phototaxis

To the wondrous scent.

 

It is a testimony

To making the world brighter.

Linked to the smiles that appear

on our faces.

 

Below the crimson base lies a stem.

As your glossy eyes soak in the beauty

Of the rose.

Your gentle fingers hold the stem.

 

It is there, 

Growing

With the mature rose

Holding it as high as possible.

 

Its sole purpose

Is to keep the beauty in our world

Upright.
