    The Rose

    The dove landed gently in the harbored garden
    that was my heart
    tender as spring’s first green
    delicate care nurtured forgotten buds
    to bloom

    Whimsey, laughter like warm Carribean waves
    shades of aqua and light blue
    cooed a beguiling love poem
    measured as the changing tides
    no rhyme remains of our summer song
    no reason to understand

    The dove flew afar in silent flight
    stealth emerged the owl
    the rose in bloom awakened
    her strength survives the wind
    the garden once abandoned
    reborn revived relived

    Damned UnAmerican

    ,
    beneath the city, hid from the day
    a return ticket for the underground

    southern bound, I hear the call
    as I near my stop, the shopping precinct

    on a decent day, thro sliding doors
    but I'm on my way to hit the shops

    and it never stops, the escalator
    so much greater than the lift

    I need to shift, but what to buy?
    for a gift to a girl from a man

    the chocolate stand comes in handy
    with its grand display of different sweets

    but a bit too twee, and I should do better
    for the winter freeze, maybe a jumper

    but I am stumped, as to what size fits
    much safer if I got her some woolly gloves!

    I’d like to ask that if any of you don’t mind, would you critique my entry for this challenge. You can post it or just PM me at your convenience.

    Thank you in advance.
