A Rose is a Rose is a Rose: Love Letter to Nature

With bated breath, waiting in the shadows 

for our special Rose to appear 

Waiting in anticipation for our Rose to evolve 

from birth to full bloom 

We are anxious to observe the beauty of her petals 

Not knowing what the Spring season will bring 

We are mesmerized by the love that she shares 

Even if it is just for a moment 

As we go from one station of life to the next

Our Rose reminds us that love of life 

is carried by the weight of one petal 

As she allows her bright light to shine 

Watching our Rose change her form like energy 

Each one of her petals gently show us, step by step, 

how to grab on to the love of life… 

and never let it go 

As our Rose show us how to slow dance through life 

inhaling and exhaling her beauty 

As she shows us how to reach for joy 

With the hope of promise for a new day 

Let us take a breath and 

Spring Forward
