about a rose


House of Heart

She stands erect

layered in silky leaves

drooping beneath  globules

of viscous dew.

For the love of light

she spreads  her fragile  petals

to the broad faced sun and

sinks her sinewy roots into

the sweet damp earth.

Her hours are filled with

honey bees and the soft

blue of heaven.

At dusk she combs the air

with sweetness retreating

from the night  into

pearly pools of the moon.

Maxwell rose
