Glenda Galán

She said through red letters

“a rose is a rose is a rose”.

I didn’t understand.

Then, I found Juliet saying

“that which we call a rose by any other name

would smell as sweet”

And I understood.

When we mention “A ROSE”

it’s always be what it is,

but somebody knows what is a rose?

A rose can be a simple flower, a scent,

a feeling that varies more and more

as we make it our own and becomes

whatever you want it to be

or what it always or never was.
