Rose

Soft lines

Edged in scarlet hue

Pulsing with life in stillness

Richness in a centre beat

Seamless curves in velvet

Layers kissed in light

Uncurling to unfold

Touched by night to a close

For day to unfurl

Grace in slumbered ease

Caressed in a feast

A passing flight

Proud in splendour

    Such exquisitely beautiful words, spoken from the beauty held within. I adore every single word, each expresses admiration which in essence what a rose signifies to me.

    “Soft lines
    Edged in scarlet hue
    Pulsing with life in stillness”

    Such visual tapestry, ornate delicacy and language.

    Perfect.

    Such graceful elegance and clarity. An apt and worthy ode to a natural beauty both the flower itself and dare I say it, the poet also. X
