Little Buds

From The Heart

Crimson buds

lay sleeping on the tips

on the long green stems,

Protected by sharp

prickly thorns

to repel any invasion

to the intent on the bud

to flower into a fragrant image of beauty

for the world to see.

Why then

is something more precious

than the roses bud

not protected as well?

The unborn child.
