~ A Velvet Rose ~

She writes with such fragrance.... Her words, like flowers Flowing from her pen Eyes like the ocean Serenity, that never ends The softness of her touch Her heart melting from within Such gentleness of colors Like the still warming wind.... On journies she takes us Her vision our eyes The breath of her breathing Brings life deep inside A passage, her picture These sands of her shores I whisper her majestic I long for her more.... Smiling as I see her The breeze dancing through her hair Such glory, her figure Radiant I stare At her light, this lady Her wrappings of care.... Gentle is her essence With her pureness profound Her grace as she walks As she passes I bow To her wonders, her treasures Her life, I bow.... For never have my eyes Beheld such as she Never in this life Have I found such a dream Her eloquence, her meakness Her enchanting soul Painting this canvas, her portrait This splendor, for all to behold.... To love with such passion The worlds hand, that she holds Her fragrance, like flowers...."Her Beauty!" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ A Velvet Rose ~

Absolutely beautiful, John! Feels mellow, sincere, serene..a heart warming piece that will light up the hearts of those who read it. 'Her fragrance',"Her eloquence", surely subtle and as heady as "The Velvet Rose". Wonderfully written, John! Here, you show great fervor and tenderness for this person to whom you have written this dedication. Wishing you and yours the best John!! God bless.....Love to you, Mikki

This is a great piece of writing. the use of simile is stretched fully in order to maintain an image. The image is classical in its portrayal of womanhood yet there is a contemporary feel to it. The line 'Painting this canvas, her portrait ' is great as it jolts the reader out of a dreamy state and is a clever device. May I suggest that you use a diffeent word than 'fragrance' in the last line, because it seems to contradict the use of the word in the opening line?

This is so beautiful.:) Deeply beautiful....John, if you wanted me to see this, because it was about me, that is the sweetest thing anyone has done for me in awhile.:) I am actually at a loss for words, that someone would think so much of me--but I am honored and truly touched. I probably do not deserve such a high place in your thoughts, but you've made me want to reach higher.:) Love, Sara

John, this is beautiful rose itself. Such a joy to read and a lovely dedication to someone very dear to you. Sorry I have gotten behind. I am visiting my sister and brother-in-law and traveled 7 hours yesterday to get here. Thank you for your always thoughtful comments. I hope you are well. I cannot leave you with a bible verse this time because I don't know where my sisters is and she is sleeping. I will give you 2 later when I read The White Knight! GBY Love, Robin

At this moment, this glorious poem lands in my favorites, far, the most beautiful thing you have ever written, and one of the most beautiful poems on my quest through all of poetry soup poems since I've been here. Said from the heart...whoever is the subject, I do believe, is heavenly sent. Wow!! No other words to describe ~ Love, Carrie
