a rose by any other name?

your slightest look will easily unclose me,
  though I have closed myself as fingers,
      you open petal by petal
 as spring opens her first rose
                                 e.e. cummings
oh, how I adore poetry….I know its not a rose, 
but all my blogging chicas were showing off their poppy finery…they 
arrived here in all their fiery explosive glory…better late than
never I suppose…hope you are having a beautiful week end!
