The Rose

How many admiring eyes set upon you

And caught their breath to desire you

How many lips touched your fragile petals

And wonder how sturdy they were to hold

The freshness of the morning dew and swayed gently

in the harshness of wild windy tides

Your bloom spoke volumes of tunes in harmony 

and complementary hues, unrivaled

Your sight was fashioned to give an undeniably pure pleasure

In the most calm and satisfying respite

Surviving gracefully to the ravaging rage of the change of season

Easing up the uncertainty of wilted pride in summer

Dormant yet strong to repose silently in winter

Yielding its simplicity in a most content way

Vulnerability secured under the proud pricking thorns

So fierce,so quick, so strong yet delicate

Faded she may look at times but  her fragrance stayed

with endurance to my delight...


Oh! my rose, your grace

an inspiration

Your beauty,

 an awe

Your purity,

a respect

Your thorn,

a shield

You are a creation, when mortals

mutter words of praise...
