Lavender Rose

A lavender rose
Placed on the bed beside her
Where he longs to be
He picked this rose just for her
True love without history

He feels so alone
The love just flows one way
Nature can be cruel
Without the gift of vision
She can't know love at first sight

    Incredibly, those last two lines. The only real advantage to blindness, that I can think of, is that you will never judge a person based on appearance. Only the real person will be visible to them. Everything else is unknown... I hope you do well in the contest!

    That is true, perhaps for them it's love at first touch.

    This is lovely and sentimental. Thank you for your kind comments. I tried to find the poem but my computer is acting up and I ran out of time. What page is it on? Thanks Joyce

    Lovely in every way. I'm sure you will do superbly well in the contest. What a lovely color for the rose. My covers on FB are always displaying lavender colored flowers...my favorite. Your tanka flows well, Richard.

    I am colored blind so sadly I can not fully appreciate flowers. I do love the scent.

    Such an unusual shade of Rose, lavender's soft hue laying on a silken pillow of love, it can bloom so tenderly, it all the right places, beautiful poem penned Richard, as for the contest this will stand out from the rest, xxx

    I enjoyed seeing your take on lavender. that was MY choice in the contest as well. It's very nice to see the colors folks picked because I think it says something about them. You must be a romantic!
