Beauty Awakens

In the Petals of a Rose

By Rick HenryPublished 5 months ago Updated 15 days ago 1 min read

A delicate rose blooms in my garden

Reflecting a notion so courageous

Velvety petals beauty awakens

American Beauty gently calms us


The sun and the wind caress its petals

Romantically flowing through the cool night

Comfort and beauty in my heart settles

Its vibrant color is a lovely sight


Intense fragrance rich dark deep pink beauty

Captures my senses with thrill and delight

The wonders of earth fall deep into me

Bringing a glamour an elegant sight


The rose stands strong among all the others

Fills me with love like that from my mother

Rick Henry

Writing is a distraction for me. It takes me to places unknown that fulfill my need for intellectual stimulus, emotional release, and a soothing of the breaks and bruises of the day.
