“The Rustling Roses” – Cebu, 08 April 2017

“turn back,
turn back,”
hissed
the wind,
“you
know not
what peril
lurks
on yonder
shore
and the
sea
could snatch
you
with wicked
waves.”

“beware:
be brave
but not
too brave,”
said the
roses
rustling and
bristling as
the wind
blew stronger
grew colder
and the
song
from the
sea
grew louder,
“be bold
but not
too bold!”

the maiden
drew breath
her blade
held low
and her
hand
trembled not
even as
her heart
pounded
like the
drums
of war.

and the
youth
on the
shore
regarded her
his gaze
beguiling
yearning
longing
tempting
heavy with
an ache
a hunger
nigh on
insatiable.

but
all she
saw
was a
menace
from the
waters
and the
roses
shivered as
she passed
silent
steely
inexorable.
