Under the blistering sun
standing tall and proud
you emitted your fragrance

Kissed by the cooling breeze
your petals blushed
red, deep and intense

It may be hard to believe
yet it seems –
adversity brings out your brilliance.

  1. “Your petals blushed”….love this take on the post! Brilliance in adversity — I’m also reminded of the rose after a rain, with the raindrops glistening like diamonds on those blushing petals ❤️ Beautiful imagery in your words! Thanks for posting – I am bedazzled!
