Kevin Brown Poetry

​She braced herself -

For the cold seasons ahead,

As if some inherent thought,

Had encouraged self-preservation,

Against the spirit of change.

A multitude of thorns,

Covered her slender stem,

Self-protection was key,

Starting as she had.

A small seed,

Who clawed her way from the dirt,

A beauty once unseen, watched,

As others bloomed and wilted,

Before her eyes.

And now she grows eternally,

Anchored in my soul,

Stronger roots, endless possibility -

For I, see beyond her thorns,

She is a single red rose,

Taken in from the cold,

Placed upon a pillow.
