a revelation

April 2
 
 
A rose is a rose
Any other is not close
Certain not by nose
 
Nature’s color wheel blooms soon
Gossamer wings twirl and swoon
Their sweet appetite whetting
Hummingbirds whistle wetting
 
Season changes honed
Flower fragrances fooled none
Come April’s day con
 
Life’s ups and downs keen no less
Passions matching values bless
April 2 revelation
April 1 consternation

Hi Nelson.
Good to hear from you again. Good poem. I had look up the word "consternation.," It got me off my lazy butt and drove me over to the dictionary to look it. Good work. I finally got off my lazy butt.
