More imagining

More imagining

A rose needs the light
           in order for its beauty to shine
though the thorns can
           prick a finger in the dark
and a rose shared becomes
           much more than itself
it establishes a dialogue
           even if unspoken
between two perspectives
           a flow of feeling and meaning
that does not need
           to be put into words
the silence for example
           of two people in love
in the presence of a rose
           that adds a third dimension
nothing more substantial
           nothing more real
than the kiss that is
           yet to be given
