This Rose

HAREKRISHNA DEKA writes a poem on the occasion of Rose Day

I was in the wilderness
Did not know this rose
Was waiting.
What colour was this rose?
Just then in the sky
I saw the rainbow.
The rose reflected all its colours
It entered my eyes
And into my breath.
Since then I am breathing
The rose of the rainbow.
