My Beautiful Rose


Shakespeare wrote in Romeo & Juliet
 "A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet"


It has long lost it's label so I can't tell you what it is
It grows on the fence beside the garage -
Never watered or fertilized.

Yet I wake some mornings with the heady fragrance 
of this beautiful bloom
on my pillow.

Everyday is Valentine's Day.
