A bounty for sure
as I whisper triumph to self
lurid details of a glistening calyx
not obscured by pour lighting
The rose solicits a song from
my spirit
Melodic notes as smooth suede gloves bathe my soul 
A dilettante gardener such as I
captures it’s image
and with glee
deposit it in my drop box
for all the world to see
