Our Two Roses
written by: Christina Ciufo
Our two roses, our courtship,
in their evergreen stems,
besides the black iron gate,
and two yellow butterflies fluttering
and swallowing their succulent nectar.
An evocative fragrance emanates
from their centers, their petals,
and into the air, enticing naïve hearts
under their enchantment.
Scarlet petals, elegant and silk
like our lips. When their petals osculate,
they become submerged in morning dew
and sunlight. They still remained elegant
and alluring when we were naïve.
Our two roses my darling, still remain since Valentine’s Day.
