Flamenco Rose (Poem)

Flamenco Rose
by Tim Kavi

there is a rose
that some say
is beauty all by itself

but there is a greater
rose than this

and that is the rose

in your hand
in your hair
in your teeth

as you danced
under the moonlight

it is beautiful

and yet adorned
more beautifully

with your love

and with your kiss!

Poet's Afterword: This is a short simple poem. However, there is more than one dance form that uses a rose, and this poem refers to them both in the actions described. I am referring not only to the Flamenco, but to the Tango as well.
