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.
