Rose’s Qualifications

At first

Chosen due to

Certain characteristics


Whipped around

A pure rose

Spinning through time

Loses many of its petals

To the sandy wind


The others

Stuck to the stalk

Still show hints of the original bloom

Begin to fade

Sliding through

The dirtying day

Landing on a decision


After all this time

That once “pure” rose

Fell into a different state of being

It was no longer what it was chosen for

It was changed

By the withering time

A different flower now stood

In the place

Only a rose could fill

And was so cast out

Of the broken hourglass
