A DAZZLING ROSE

A daily choice I must make

(It keeps me on my toes)

I can either touch the prickly thorns

—-Or delight at the Dazzling Rose.

I love daily walks in my garden

Enjoying fresh flowers row upon row;

But just for today I’ll ignore the thorns

—-And enjoy the Dazzling Rose.

    Just for today ignore the thorns? We forget some times I think… I liked the sentiment this poem sends out to the world.
