Pink Rose

by Janet Leonard
Share
your
sweetness,
pink rose.
Be bold in your
unsurpassed beauty,
for now is your time.
Bask in your loveliness, pink rose.
Be brave as sharp thorns surround you.
Tilt your face toward sunshine,
as your unblemished petals unfold,
glowing like silkened skin.
Your
light
perfume
permeates
April's air--
invites me to turn
my head to notice you.
You
ask me
to lose
myself
in your
beauty.
How
can
I not,
as you
share
such
sweetness,
pink rose?
