Joseph Mayo Wristen - Monastery of the Rose

arched entrance way to 
the eleven circles of the 
Rose, mystic pathway 
to enlightenment, snow 
covered dome above
earth’s spring, seed of 
virgin soil, peddles of 
mans toil, spiritual 
journey taken beyond death

decorated Monastery 
concealing
Buddha’s Blossom

stone hallway of sculpture 
painted pillars describing
the ways of charm, stairway
to the hidden stem of life 

under the rays of heaven
robe summons leading to 
the doorway to the Rose’s
sacred chamber, seven disciples 
taking their ceremonial rites 

guiding each spirit looking 
to enter, to their waiting place 
within the rings of rebirth 

a continuous journey in time
where their soul no longer 
needs to return for observance 
their deeds on the physical 
plane having freed their essence, 
touch of the Rose’s fragrance 
taking them beyond death, 
the world of our Lord, freeing 
them from the forces of 
evil and the words of man forever
