Poetry ~ Holly R. Appling

imagination and thorn

this is a rose of my imagination –
its graphic red edge erratic,

nook of petals unending in fullness,
desert bell and mantra swell absolute.

its concept glitters a universe.
galaxies evolve out of mind –

quasar and star collapse in time,
supernovas surge to re-birth.

yet the rose is only so beautiful
because of its nostalgia, it is the rose

of my imagination, a rose I try
to love. the thorn still so uncertain –

Holly R. Appling lives in Canada. Her poems have appeared in QWERTY, Carousel, Leaf Press, Jabberwocky, WEIRDYEAR, Aphelion and The Scarlet Sound. More of her writing is at www.hollyappling.wordpress.com.
