I plucked the bloom

Atop a stem

The smell enticed

Me sweet


I stripped the leaves

About the limbs

The baring was

Now complete


I left the thorns

Among the vine

The message pours

Out replete


I twist the cords

From two to one

The circle began

Will meet


I placed the crown

Upon my brow

The word received

I keep


I hear the sound

Inside my heart

The voice keeps

Calling deep


A rose from darkness

Into the light

The truth nevermore

To sleep
