Twisted Rose


She was pursued by a throng of suitors,
as his one shy rose
wooed her

with idling patience
in tentative
low gear,

but when he accelerated,
boastful,
certainly sure,

he flew preoccupied
off an unseen curve
and never returned.

Now a sculpture
of twisted petals
dance in sardonic curves

around a shrunken heart
in a vase
without water.


Judith Pordon






Rosa Torcida


Perseguido por una horda de demandantes
su timida rosa
la cortejaba

con una atronadora paciencia
en una tentativa
baja velocidad

Pero cuando el acelero
orgulloso
ciertamente seguro

el volo preocupado
de una curva no vista
y nunca regreso

Ahora una escultura
de torcidos petalos
danza en sarcasticas curvas

alrededor de un encogido corazon
en un florero
sin agua.


- Judith Pordon
