Pink Alberta Roses

Emotional adversity strikes
anatomy; cadenced breath,
as her whispered discourse sighs.

There's a lost summer in her stare
which swirls through winter's cotton chill.

Her innermost ocean throws undulations
across the spirit's blankets -
and she ties silk fragrance to memory
while her cheeks blush poetry's kiss.

Sensual jingles devour language
when silence threatens,
but her petals of strength
are like collisions of romance,
her intimate intercourse blooms
with quiet social ability.

Wildflowers and melodies
are her heart's magical power,
atmospheric familiarity that crashes
smiles into love's cultivated space.

Pink Alberta roses seduce her fancy
as nature's harmony wraps rain
into time-zones travelled -
so many miles captured under fingernails.

Compositions of regret
slip artistic deliverance towards
lithe movement; improvised gestures
which sip moisture from lips
with gentle suggestion.

And her beauty is laced with finery's ambition,
she's a smooth galaxy's rippled performance
inside a universe of mathematical floral design.
