Sand Rose

Sand Rose

Rose, harsh rose,

marred and with stint of petals,

meagre flower, thin,

sparse of leaf,

more precious

than a wet rose

single on a stem—

you are caught in the drift.

Stunted, with small leaf,

you are flung on the sand,

you are lifted

in the crisp sand

that drives in the wind.

can the spice rose

drip such acrid fragrance

hardened in a leaf?

Writer: Michael Boughn was born in 1946 in Riverside, California. He lived there until he was nineteen years old, at which point he moved to Vancouver, B.C. because of his opposition to the U.S. war in Vietnam. The only advice he has for young writers is to read as much and as widely as possible, and to not be afraid to imitate the writers you love the most. That’s how you learn your craft. - Kit : « Sweet Summer » made by Linda Cumberland.
