Two Roses


Two roses stood closely together-

fully bloomed and tightly formed.

In harmony, they stood-

together and strong.

No rodents, pestilence, nor seasons

could separate them.

The rain, snow, storms

and all elements came their way.

Together with resilience

they withstood the test of time.

Through nurturing, without prodding,

their petals were beautifully sprouted.

Continually, both grew

with beauty above the rest.

Their sweet fragrances penetrated the air.

The roses each blossomed without care.

Both roses were fertile and secure.

They stood poised to further endure.

Then one day someone came along

and picked one rose.

Now withered, exposed and shattered,

the one rose stands alone,

worn and tattered.
