Be a Rose

Be a rose


Giving fragrance when caressed

Held up softly, crushed or destroyed



In abundance it fills the ambiance

Never withholds what it contains


Every person you come by

Paths have crossed, wisdom unknown



Don’t let it pass or go to waste

Without a whisper, heart to heart



Spiky shells hide weary souls

Fragile and wounded throbbing in pain



Just like you, carry own load

Seeking retreat, hurting and cold


Wash tears and fears with a glowing smile

Extend your hands, embrace a face


Nabi Saleh, West Bank, 10.2.2013

Reassure with a tender gaze

Delight, as you leave your scent behind



Brush your surrounds with your heavenly soul

Paint grey days with rainbow hues



lilac and mauve, violet and green

Red and amber, pink and blue



Scatter your pearls for all who seek

Sparkles of joy, boundless sublime



Awaken seeds of love, dormant inside

Watch barren hearts tremble and bloom

Be a rose
