    the stem, long with
    bends and ridges
    shows the life we walk
    as we journey upward

    the stem covered with
    thorns and bruises
    symbolizes the pain we
    go through in life to reach

    the petals, rich in color,
    layered and closed that
    speaks of the untold
    treasures held within

    until the day the sun
    welcomes a new day
    and the petals trust
    and accept the one who

    holds them, covers them,
    prunes them, and places
    them in fresh water so
    that when morning comes

    the petals spread
    and the fragrance
    of love is released
    into the atmosphere;

    This is a great post. Flowing like the music notes of your Avator.

    Can't pick a rose without pricking your thumb. Worth the pain to share with someone. How it first made you feel. How you dealt with the initial thrill. Of knowing they did it for you. Show the love they bring. See here is where it hurts. See the blood in my heart never stops flowing when you touch me with your thorns. I didn't wear gloves when I came to you. I wanted to experience. Everything you bring. It will heal. Until it does. I will remember.
