To one who stands alone my long gaze goes. How dignified she poses here, and quite unique and lovely is the bluest rose! Apart from where one very large bush grows so lush with other roses pink and bright, to one who stands alone my long gaze goes. Some lavender upon her petals shows its hue of dreams and mystical delight! Unique and lovely is the bluest rose. Above the bush of blues, when a breeze blows, She dwarfs them all, face lifting to the light. To one who stands alone my long gaze goes. The trials she has weathered, no one knows but I alone; I know her secret plight. Unique and lovely is the bluest rose. As purple streaks the sky, life’s fast pace slows, and day begins to drift into the night. To one who stands alone my long gaze goes. Unique and lovely is the bluest rose. Written June 13, 2016 for the Villanelle Me A Flower or Flowers - Poetry Contest of Broken Wings

This is so deserving of the win. I've always wanted to try a Villanelle. A masterpiece, I think Andrea.

Lovely Villanelle Andrea, my dad had a blue rose bush in our garden when we were growing up, loved the purple hue they had and maybe that's part of the reason purple roses are my favorite~ Congrats on a top win :)

I got a feeling that this is a little deeper than "the bluest rose". I sense a metaphor that eludes me on first reading....well deserved placement.

You possess such an intimate relationship with the rose, it seems ... loved the colors and the tender way you put it all together. I would say, a definite contender.

A beauty Andrea, a wonderful metaphor for a unique woman. I'm a big rose fan and have four small bushes in front of my house. One of them is a purple/blue rose.
