The Gateway Rose.jpg(By: Adrian Drower)

Its petals as soft as silk,
Its color, A glossy red.
It makes me feel relaxed,
It’s like I’m lying in bed.

I lie down in the soft grass,
I close my eyes- I am free.
Feel the wind through my hair,
As I dance through grass, flowers.

Frozen within the world’s clock,
My stressful mind becomes clear.
The peaceful night draws near,
For the Rose gives way to night.

Then when the yellow sun goes down,
An array of colors I see.
They dance and color the sky,
Preparing for the night.

The shadows thrown all around,
Night rodents dance with no sound.
As I gaze up at the sky,
It’s beautiful- I’m breathless.
