                                      THE ROSE

 

                   I set  its rose petals

to my lips,

humming  it a song

using its fragrance.

 

The thorns pricked me,

blood on my fingers,

flowers that blossomed

deep in my heart.

 

My rose bush was watered

with my tears

and left a saltiness      

on my cheeks.

 

                   MARY KOULENTIANOU

 

             * 2nd Poetry Prize by the Municipality of Argos.
