endothermic rose

seed lies in, within, slowly growing
as the sunlight and air warms it up
feeling the roots grab hold of my heart
as the first sprout of life shakes the soul

the appearance of the pulp, amazed me
heart rate increased, pumping my blood into it
i fed blood and spirit into its growth
now slowly it shows the red buds of early petals

i will for all time take good care of it
making sure it flowers into a magnificent being
as it feeds from the energy within me
to live another day, for her sake.
