The Season’s of a Rose



What will I be, who will receive my beauty?
Who will love me?
Beginnings

I kiss the sun, I drink the rain
Receiving the glorious bounty
Nourishment

Every shade and fullness, breathtaking
God’s perfect creation
Colour

The earth affects my full potential
I’m so vulnerable
Growth

My beauty unfolds, all bask in the excellence
The thorns complicate me
Development

Sweet fragrance, intoxicating, memorable
Different to each recipient
Uniqueness

Romance, my beloved, my partner,
Will you be mine?
Love

Hurting, the pain I hide, please protect me
The winds, the infestations
Suffering

Full bloom, exquisite, celebrated, temporary
Look at me
Influence

Gifting, sweetness, giving back to the universe
Understanding kindness
Knowledge

Slightly fading, still exalted and displayed
The world looks different
Wisdom

Others around me, some have fallen now
In my memory always
Loss

Wilting, petals falling, my final days
I understand beauty
Confidence

I know what I was meant to be.
I know who loves me.
Eternity


“…All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field…The grass
withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:6 NIV)

This is a beautiful poem. I like how compared the seasons of life to a rose.
