I like to drink a cappuccino rose

I wake up.

The morning seems lovely with a glorious shine of energy.

I am thirsty.

I run across the royal garden.

I find you.

You are cappuccino coffee that I would describe as a rose.

A beautiful garden rose that I can drink.

Your petals are shaped by the steam.

Your stem is made of gold.

Your stem has a bud in the shape of a tiny cup to hold you.

Your roots are under the flowerbed.

Your roots are attached to the downstairs’ royal kitchen.

It is in the kitchen that the ingredients of your beauty are sent.

The ingredient of your beauty are measured well and poured into the tip of your roots.

You come steaming upwards from your stem and then you bloom into a beautiful rose.

The figure of your beautiful petals needs chocolate.

The dust of chocolate might be too much to keep on your petals.

I don’t want the ants to know you exist.

Your leaves hold two bells.

The bells ring to signal that you have bloomed.

The bells of your leaves alert me to wake up in the morning.

You are so wonderful to have in the garden.

I shall walk away from you now.

I shall return once you have bloomed again.

      Hi CurrentScience303,

      Yes, Sir Arthur C. Clarke is still remembered.

      I sure do remember because I believe he was a very good scientist.

      You are correct about where he lived.

      I thank you so much for your comment.

      These days I am not writing new hubs but I thank you for your request.

      Best wishes to you, CurrentScience303 .

      Nice banter/pattern of verse! I'm not too well versed in critiquing poetry, yet: you seem to have a knack! // btw: Is the, now deceased, British scientist: Arthur C. Clarke at all remembered within Sri Lanka? {As, I know he lived his final years out in residence within Colombo, Sri Lanka, he adored the land & it's people}. Thanks, & a request to Post More Writings, when you have them avail.

      Dear cruelkindness,

      I like to believe all poems in the world have a creative beauty hidden in them. Words can create beauty to calm the mind. I am happy that you liked the verse :"You come steaming upwards from your stem and then you bloom into a beautiful rose.", in my poem.

      I just want you to know you will always belong to someones mind(You will be remembered)

      Thank you for your kind and encouraging words in your comment.

      "You come steaming upwards from your stem and then you bloom into a beautiful rose."

      Super slick!

      Dear donnaisabella,

      I think plants are gentle and unique. Yes, it takes a deep form of thinking to understand the structure of a flower plant.Perhaps drawing and labeling a plant can be helpful in remembering their unique structure. I am happy that my poems has given you a gentle touch towards nature. I send you my blessings too. I hope to keep writing and enjoying my time on Hubpages.

      I like the wonder you express at the ingenious creation of this particular rose you are talking to. For a moment I had to imagine the codes and dna strings embedded in mere seeds, dust (pollen) and the emerging blade of a rose plant to appreciate the wonder of its unique design. Is it not amazing that those petals just unfurl into shape, color and the most amazing patterns? Thanks for writing this Shamela, it helps me get closer to nature. Many blessings in your writing. Keep writing my dear friend.
