SWEETEST SOLACE (SONNET)

I take some time to smell a rose and dream
Which of these is sweeter I now ponder
Could it be the bud with pedals of cream
Or the fantasy through which I wander

Can this flower brighten my dreary day
Like little sips from my favorite wine
Is it too much to ask of such a spray
For good to come from such a thorny vine

Will my salvation be this incubus
Can it arrive in such a common form
Is this a matter I need not discuss
If due to this my broken heart shall warm

So I shall take a moment just for me
And in so doing set my essence free
