A Secret Rose

Hidden But Not Lost

There are so many treasures in life that are enjoyed

Then there are some that have not been found

Look up high and sometimes low

You will see a beauty that only a few know

Many people too busy to care or have no time to understand

The inner workings of pleasure that wait to be triggered in our mind

Where we are satisfied and fulfilled with a joy we can't explain

A loss for words and where our feelings are so delicate and sensative to the touch

It is easier to avoid than to dig down deep to see where the roots grow

Other people think it is the fertility that gives us so much pleasure

I am not sure there is a way to measure

In a modern world where everything is high tech and advanced

How could something so simple be enhanced

When are mind races to a new frontier and beyond

Nature still takes hold and has beauty that we can not comprehend

Far greater than anything we can ever build

Fascinating and always different

As the beauty catches your eye

The wonderful colors that dazzle your vision

The harshness of a thorn that will prick you if you are not careful

The smell so tantalizing that can releave you of your senses

As you begin to escape and drift to a world so different than the one you know

Now you see a rose tucked in a corner with magnificience in a league of its own

To share with others when willing

To bring love to a new level

So pure and innocent

Tamed or wild

I call this rose Mary different than any Rosemary anyone has ever known

A blessing from the heart

This is where we all can learn to live with a fresh start

Phoebe Pike Well if you didn't take the time reading one of my many thoughts I would just write silently in the night.Silence is golden but words are so great to me.Good night and dream your best dreams yet.

I have never been so touched! I won't ever forget your beautiful poem, and to know that I inspired it with my Hub " The Rose" makes me so happy. I am humbled that you would name your fictional rose, Mary.

What else can I say, except I will bookmark this Hub and hold it dear in my heart forever.

I voted this UP, and will share with others.

Be strong, I am thinking of you, my friend. Mary

Mary615 will be honored by your mention of her. She is an inspiration to many people and obviously has a heart as big as the universe. Enjoyed your poem especially the last two lines: "A blessing from the heart

This is where we all can learn to live with a fresh start" Up and beautiful votes.

Voted up and beautiful. Wonderful tribute and rightly so as any rose is as lovely as Mary is and Mary is as lovely as any rose. They compliment each other. Enjoyed your poem much.

Dim Flaxenwick A world of smiles that go to infinity and beyond.The pleasure of seeing a loved one so happy their cheeks hurt from smiling so much.Listening to a room filled with laughter that never stops.The comfort and kindness that flows smooth as water from a faucet.Friendships that grow as easy as weeds that never die.Helping each other live a better life in ways that we could never imagine.Seeing it all happen right before my eyes every day is one more blessing I am so proud to share with everyone who cares to read and listen.Thanx so much and may your day get brighter and brighter like watching super nova.With lots of love and hugs talk soon.
