- Amethyst Rose
An uncommon variety of amethyst hue,
her stature adequate, her stalk yielding,
but persistent and thorny to
those who would quash her
Despite the ravages of time and
circumstance to her outer petals…
she finds inner strength from deep
within her folds and somehow
manages still to give.
Her spray is full of abiding love,
commitment and loyalty, but only
for those she deems worthy.
She is a complex beauty with a
delicate sinew and while some
may smile upon her
with ardent unfailing affection…
She is plaintively aware that her
unusual color will never be the
preferred choice of many…
but she has found her place, and voice
among the flowers in life’s garden,
and it is here that she flourishes
with a loveliness all her own
this piquant purple rose.
