From Australia With Love
by Barbara A. Taylor
Adieu Roselina

Take this perfect rose:
its long slender stem
pink fragile petals
of delicate delight
and charmed fragrances
snare
tug at heartís
desires yet
leave me
desperate.
oh! my body screams,
my hands fumbling
your perfection

no! secateurs snip,
dissect my joy

nipped
in full bloom
again.
