~ MY HEAVENLY BRIAR ROSE ~

~ MY HEAVENLY BRIAR ROSE ~

I've known so little concerning the thorn
But think the thorn a chrysalis
Serene, feral, intractable
But as time does moult away its bite
One's eye and time does soon reveal
She, who was before, highly prized
As if a star were confined to womb
Within a heathered meadow's bloom
There, inconspicuously,
Has grown my Love
In a guarded garden's glow
Incubating,
My enigmatically perfect
Briar Rose...

Beautiful, must hang,
The gardens from whence she came
I wonder, where lays this loving oasis?
Oh, to wander there in secret silence
To dance through the land that stirs her blood
To bring her home, to witness her glow
Perpetuated,
By a homecoming befitting a queen
But,
With no pomp or circumstance
For none could dare or even compare
To the rarity of heart she holds
No song could attempt to expose
The triumph she creates inside of me
My Heavenly,
Briar Rose...

Tony, this is so beautiful!  I always feel like you are always trying to figure me out and I am so simple!  Lol  I promise I do not have thorns.  I imagine the story of  Sleeping Beauty and how they called Princess Aurora, Briar Rose.  I hope as you keep studying me and trying to figure me out, that you will realize my motivations in life all have to do with love and compassion....and my garden does not allow harmful things....The imagery in this is incredible and so original...I can tell you put a lot of thought and heart into this, and I am touched.  Thank you.  I love this so much. Much love n hugs, C  xooxoxoxo

Hey THANX so much MATTHEW!!.....yes, this was particularly gratifying to write.......as it pertained to "My Muse" as you so aptly described it.......I wrote it with Cherie in mind....she sometimes inspires my writes as she so often unwittingly offers up "life-lessons" that affect me greatly....it is a blessing to have such kindness in one's life....especially when that kindness is of the unwitting kind......she is quite simply......a lady of great conviction and morality.......Thanx again L.J. .......stay groovy brother!!.......smiles.......T xo 🐧✴❤

Breath taking . I lost the air for the moment beneath my wings.
Shine like a star sweets.
