potted roses….

I held lucid conversations
with a potted rose
Empathizing over falling petals and tears.
How they have similar silenced grace
Unlike fallen angels.
Aren’t we all searching for a love 
that should have been here by now?
I am now practicing intentional piety 
To find strength
To return to sacredness-the sanctity of my being.
