-John Winston Lennon (1940-1980)


Sitting, shining

The beauty shines through

 

Gleaming, glowing

Dew drops all around

 

Thinking, wondering

What about inside

 

Knowing, deciding

I am beautiful at heart

Thanks, I thought it was something most could relate to and that the rose thing would be entertaining. Thanks for the feed back @Beila

"The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." -Mark Twain

I love this poem! I completely expected it from the first few lines to be about a beautiful flower; twisting it to make yourself the flower is unexpected, lovely, and inspirational. You put a big a smile on my face. By the way, the "knowing, deciding" was a great choice of words there!
