the life cycle of a rose (redux)

Once more…

Translation to German by Bernd @ Neues Vom Hutschi

Lebenszyklus einer Rose (Redux)

Aufrecht steht sie auf ihrem hohen Stengel,
in geäderte Blätter gewickelt,
mit Fettkügelchen bewuchert,
zähflüssigem Tau.
Denn die Liebe des Lichts
breitet sich auf zarte Blütenblätter,
hin zum breiten Antlitz der Sonne,
sehnige Wurzeln
graben sich in die Erde.
erhebt sich aufrecht die Blütenkrone.
In der Dämmerung
kämmt sie die Luft
mit frischem Duft,
zieht sich in der Nacht ins
prickelnde Bad des Mondes zurück.

House of Heart

She stands erect on a tall stalk

wrapped in veiny leaves

burgeoned with  fat globules

of  viscous dew.

For  love of light

she spreads tender petals

to the broad faced sun

sinking   sinewy roots

into  earth.

Swollen with nectar her

corolla lifts upright.

At dusk she combs the air

with sweetness,

retreating at night into

pearly pools of the moon.
