It won't rain roses - we must plant them.

A Salmon Pink Rose.

Love made this perfect rose
fragrant from creation's hand.

A glory of colour, vibrant life,
searing beauty in salmon pink

whorls of plush petals nestled
round a golden cushion of pins.

A soft sheen of veined leaves,
on barbed sprays of green.

The rose whispers thanks, dawn
to dusk tuned in to sunbeams ,

though it will never rain roses -
for beauty we brave the thorns.
