How does she coax a rose from a stone?
Cold flat surface and non-dimensional plane.
Heavy burden of stone, lifeless, exhausted, no name.
Her days have moved forward with more days yet to come.
And like a stone she won’t let go of the things that she’s done.
And she sits contemplating the greatest of sin, treating each day as a means to an end.
Until one day a question came in the form of a prose.
Is there any way to coax a rose from a stone?
Is there any way to move a stone to rebirth?
No more counting on someone or something to show her self-worth?
So she sits at her table, a stone in her hand and reaches an agreement they both understand.
This life did not give her something already made, but provided the pathway to let her be brave.
So to answer the question that came from this prose;
How does one coax a rose from a stone?
The answer is simple, but the path isn’t straight.
It takes time, patience, bravery, and love to create.
