National Poetry Writing Month: Day 22 – Rose

I wonder
What part of your mind
I grow in,
Whether in mounds of weeds
Or well-watered gardens.

I want to be your rose,
Lingering like a
Vintage blossom
Tucked in the corner of
Maps
Folded, creased
Used, reused
Always returned to,
As you seemed to be
Somewhere
Yet going nowhere
Making people think
You were well-traveled.

I wonder
What part of your heart
I grow in,
Whether in mounds of winter shrubs
Or well-watered summer flowers.
