Thank you SKyD Photography ( Sean Dudley ) For This Beautiful Photo and the Inspiration

Summer Rose

Summer sun shimmers
as late afternoon's red hue
casts a beautiful haze
over all I see
and remnants of a beautiful Rose
dictates my view
it's petals scattered
upon the Earth
I remember still
when she bloomed
with a beauty that haunted
my Heart and I was afraid to cut her stem
in fear of losing a friend
Yet Summer comes
with golden sun and stinging heat
with a price so difficult to comprehend
Only my tear remains
as a gorgeous petal
lays still on my palm
yet I will preserve its wonder
that I may evoke
he splendor
that melted my soul.
