ROSES ARE RED




How often have you wondered why the rose is the flower of love? Never, you say you have never wondered that?

Just me, again, the only one who wonders stuff like that?

I am equally touched when I receive a pink rose or a white rose or my absolute favorite yellow rose from someone who loves me or appreciates me.  It surely doesn’t need to be red. Red, the color of blood which fills the heart, maybe that’s it?  If so, I must be jaundiced. The yellow flowing through my veins to my yellow heart most certainly would be diseased, right?  

But back to the promt.

THE  RED  ROSE  BUD

The bud is bundled up, it’s tight.
It seems alone and sad.
The brilliant redness
Yet to show it’s light.
The bud must open now.

As the petals slip apart
One from the other
The true beauty of the heart
Emerges slowly and with grace.
The rose in full bloom, wow.

One solitary flower
Standing in the vase.
One lonely bud no more
An American Beauty
Took its place.

Love is being shown.
Love is being felt.
The rose has always known
The heart will always melt.
This rose is always meant.

Breathe her scent.

    1. That is something I have seen, just last week actually. 1800flowers arrived at my daughter's house and as she was putting them in the lovely vase, each of them open ever so slowly and perfectly one by one. Amazing and beautiful. We were so impressed.
      Thank you so much.♥
