droughted

clustered in folds of soft pink
surrounded by a lush jungle
protecting their mystery
how like a ripened woman
bloom the wild roses growing
by the dry stone wall

i planted that rose bush
just a sprig really
during a longfaded life
i barely remember
when the unknown
glowed with promise

unlike these roses
courted by butterflies
visited by bees
anything of softness
lushness mystery
about me has brittled

i offer no promises of
nourishment or beauty
petals too long unwatered
i am a scentless potpourri
in a chipped vintage vessel
on the sidetable of life
