Young Rose

Bud—
a firm drop of blood
on dragon bush,
blooming.

Soft complexion.
(Blush.)
Jagged edges.
Tears of dew.

Sharp fingers
caress a slender neck.
Suddenly,
a gift.

"Young Rose," which I wrote many, many years ago, was published in the July 2009 issue (No. 6) of Hanging Moss Journal. The journal was edited and published by Steve Meador.
