Poems & Abstract Lines

B&W RoseRoseBy Any Other Name 

Soft and velvet
Delicate
Open
With every hour,
the petals pushed outward
Until its full beauty was realized
Center exposed
Time marched over her
Slowly the edges turned brown
Velvet gave in to roughness
Soft to brittle
Delicate
Petals close in
Protect its center
Withering
Still … a flower
