A Mystical Rose

I look upon a single mystic rose
Marveling at a world of beauty
A light so bright my eyes begin to close

I feel to protect it is my duty
Here I stand within this quiet place
Marveling at a world of beauty

As the petals open I see her face
She shines with the colors of a rainbow
Here I stand within this quiet place

Music from her lips begins to flow
For a moment time begins to stand still
She shines with the colors of a rainbow

Leaving this place will take all of my will
I feel I'm powerless to look away
For a moment time begins to stand still

So I marvel at the rose night and day
I feel I'm powerless to look away 
I look upon a single mystic rose
A light so bright my eyes begin to close


Dedicated to Mystic Rose. I started to write this as a 
joint poem but could not stop once I started. Rose
I will have to get you to start us off with a verse.

    Whenever I see a comment from Mystic I think of Seal's (no relation) 'Kiss from a Rose', coz that's how her comments feel lol. Beautiful tribute to a lovely lady. Take care, Richard

    In terms of rhythm and flow.....one of your best Terzanelle, Richard. I'm sure Rose is touched by this dedication and your wish to collaborate with her...

    Thanks Eileen, Rose's name makes me think of the rose in Stephen King's Gun Slinger series, in search of the Dark tower. Within the rose is a universe that mesmorizes Roland of Gilead.
