The Velvet Rose
written by: LadyLily
Known as ‘The Velvet Rose’,
once existed, origin unknown.
She speaks mysteries unresolved,
her lovely accents almost suffocate.
The glory of its intimacy
sinks our private hearts.
Petalled centre of perfection,
how she quivers and spills dusty gold.
Drifts in wood-nurtured dreams
where Larks sing an alluring symphony.
Honouring the season with blushes,
speaking fluently in language of flowers.
My Valentine! I offer devotion and grace.
I will pursue this majestic bloom,
a breathtaking Monet moment.
A stillness answers our prayers.
Nature responds beautifully...
witnessing our lust, expanding,
as it fills with coloured fullness
twelve Red Velvets...weaved in posies.
A necklace I give, of amber studs
and sweet pea buds. We sip...
from a musk Camellia, flushed with wine.
No mists of tears my Valentine.
Rouge rosettes breathed scent
enters our being. Under willow’s shade
I offer thee...My circle of gold!...
as whispers of our future unfold.
Let us stroll golden years
within the glorious womb of Heaven.
Mine love for thee frozen in time,
encased in February’s Snow Moon.*
