Roses

Robust
Pudgy Roses 
Spring up to 
Grow 
In concrete 
Jungles.

There are 
Cracks 
Everywhere--- 
Especially 
On the 
Sidewalks. 

Still---
Shrubs erected 
Grow, 
Climbing in 
Height, leaving 
Trails that 
Expose 
Decency 
And grace. 

The light of 
Life 
Does indeed 

Live here---
Blooming 
Beautifully 
In all kinds 
of varieties, --
Ranging from 
yellows to reds,

Roses ---

Smart, sweet 
Smelling 
Rows of Roses --
Tingling with 
Pride, with 
Gusto---benefiting 
From a heritage 
Stretching 
The far reaches 
Of Persia---,

Lengthy buds 
Turn Leaflets 
&
Its undersides 
Into a glorious 
Existence of 
Daring stems. 

To view Them 
From above
 Is to see a 
Superior species 
Of life--- 
Despite cracks 
And debris 
Everywhere –

Beautiful Roses --
Lined rows 
Expectant--- Awaitin' 
The day when 
The Pearly Gates 
Do in fact open---
Sweeping up into 
Paradise earthly 
Ornaments From 
God--- who’s having 
Chosen you is absolute.
