Red Rose Temptation

by opals in moon

Age Group: Adult

Those roses were beautiful, placed up on the Wedding table, Pink and Red an aromatic splendor
The merry feast ended, I wisked the roses away.
admiring them the first day
angle cut bottoms for lasting beauty.
Pink petals falling, what a shame to lose
Three Pink Roses, One Red Rose.
leave the red rose alone
One white candle, one pink
A fine crystal bowl,
3 cups apple sweet wine,
Pink and white runner dress the old wooden table,
leave the red rose alone
Raise of hands, raise of roses, light the candles
Raise the bowl, raise the wine
leave the red rose alone
Pink petals, love thoughts, pink petals a new love
Pink petals, chanting , raise of hands, raise of bowl
pour the wine
leave the red rose alone
Petals float above the apple sweet, sip, sip, sip
leave the red rose alone
Falling deep into the red a sip a thirst, chants sways circles, fall to the heart, soul to the moon.
No Roses on the table .
Nine nights went and the music played loud laughing dancing through the large crowd, full moon, a glance
there he stood as no one in the room.
Reflections in the mirror, 18 months gone-still-
a soul grip ache, no weight on the bone
Not ever a next time

leave the red rose alone
