Frosted Rose


Frosted Rose
1/20/13

You seek no audience
As you turn imperceptibly toward the sun
Lifting your face
Melting the crystals

Frozen tears of joy and loss
Catching my eye in their beauty
Resting on your tender petals
Glittering your vibrant color

I love you more for knowing
Within the hour this will be gone
