A Thornless Rose

by Frank Cavano
(Bluffton, S.C.)

Incandescent Light----
Enclave in a foreign state
Ignoring barbs of hidden hate
You tread the silent sand.

Heart devoid of fright-
Blazing Grace to endless tribes
Forgiving ears to hostile vibes
In You Love takes Its stand.

Oh, Incandescent Light-
Why seek we the helpless dark
Ignoring our own perfect spark
Much closer than our hand?

I do not comprehend----
The map was clearly drawn by You.
'Tis but a fool shares not Your view
Preferring still his sad repose.
I do not understand----
Your wordless Song is there to hear
Why cup both ears in pointless fear
And fail to grasp the Thornless Rose.
