Birth of A Rose

Beauty unfolding

at first hint of bud,

first swell of bloom,

earliest disclosure.


Beauty unfurling

from layers of mystery,

with flourish of majesty,

in sumptuous grandeur.


Beauty lingering

delicately lush,

absurdly temporal,

timorous, yet regal.


Beauty revealing

sweetness of scent,

softness of petal,

symphony of design.


Beauty inviting

sense of delight,

frank admiration,

adoration of Maker divine.
