Climbing the Rose
Edited on Wed Mar-25-09 10:06 PM by GliderGuider
Hand over hand I climb
Your smooth stem decorated with thorns.
At each sharp tip I stop and pay my price.

Far above, red passion calls
With a voice so loud it drowns my cries of pain,
The colour of my blood an echo of that call.

At last I sink my grateful soul within your petals;
The aroma of your essence swirls.
The memory of past trials erased,
I float bodiless in bliss.

by Bodhisantra Paul Chefurka

Written in honour of my partner/lover/teacher/guide/soulmate Estelle, on the occasion of the first anniversary of recognizing each other in this incarnation.
