Blushing bloom

 In  a garden where beauty lies in sweet repose
   A  summer breeze caresses the blushing rose
 And it releases its sweet perfume
    which makes a painted lady assume
It is an invitation to visit the seductive  bloom

     The blazing sun's fiery  eyes  singe  the lovely flower
  Causing  it to  hang  its  delicate  head
 Patiently it waits for an encouraging rain shower
   But it's the sun's harsh  gaze  she dreads 

  When heroic clouds obscure the  sun
      The grateful rose lifts its  sunburnt face
       Composing itself before day is done
  But still longing to bathe in raindrops grace

When the velvet night relents to bright eyed dawn
The rose is soothed by morning dew
As it shines with beauty in the morn
 Gazing  at skies of periwinkle  blue

But she smiles when gray clouds form
As the sun hides from  the thunderstorm
And when the rain comes tumbling down
She bathes in the beauty of her crimson crown

    Congrats on your win with this one, Joseph. I finally am seeing a note you left me on my comment I made here a long time ago. You ask when to use it's. "It's" means "it is." You use it as a contraction for "it is." If you are using it as a possessive, you do not place an apostrophe: Example, The dog licked its paw.

    This is for the rose contest, right? A challenge well met!! Love that ending of her crimson cloud too. A little suggestion. Don't use it's for possessive. Just use its. As in the line. . . its head. Always nice to see you posting a new poem like this one. Luv, Andrea
