~~~ Blossom ~~~

Updated on June 21, 2013

~ Blossom ~


“ And sunset shall shy away, with blushes of deep vermilion.

‘ Farewell!’, waves the timeless rose, who seeks to shutter her satin broadcast this evensong,

Dreaming abstracts of the warmth he gave; a rest, well earned.

Her passion, is matched, verily, only by cerise cries from his reluctant departure;

Dipping, below convex horizon, issuing a warrant of entropic ‘ sayonara ‘ ,

To their cyan world.

His watch, now finite, changes guard with the silvery-ebon,

Which serves host, to a weeping, shimmery crescent,

Thence governs, her obsidian cacophony.

Hauntings from yonder, by ten million phantasmal eyes,

That wink upon a lover’s unyielding heart,

Who patiently abides, diligently awaiting her petals to reawaken,

So this brave may pluck an opulent bouquet,

To bestow a transient token upon his secret love,

Whose merlot jowls, flush, like heaven’s distant torch,

That mirrors, with molten cheeks of unabated, fiery scarlet. “

      This is a beautiful poem, as are the photos. Roses are the ultimate symbol of love.

      Have a wonderful weekend, R.Q.

      Very nice.

      I do really love archaic language. It seems very magical and romantic.

      I really liked the ending.

      I'm glad that you think so, Anna.

      This one(if you hadn't picked up on it, but you, being so perceptive, probably have), was about the inseparable relationship between the rose and the sun, and how this parallels a man and his sweetheart, and how they not only rely upon one another, but how the sun, the rose, the man and woman all interact with their mutually, symbiotic dependency.

      Thanks for your encouraging remarks, and enjoy a lovely weekend;

      Yours Sincerely,

      R.Q.

      Hi RQ

      After a long day and at a late hour; I hadn't picked up on it.

      I only knew I liked it :)

      Upon reading again I can see your transposition; which makes it all the more skillful.

      RQ,

      "Hauntings from yonder, by ten million phantasmal eyes,"

      certainly validates the word, "yonder" and makes my little piece pale in comparison. Beautiful Poem.

      Best Always,

      ".....That mirrors, with molten cheeks of unabated, fiery scarlet. "

      Such a poignant flow of words to end in a scarlet passion to leave us readers with a crave to smell more fragrance from you with this wonderful creation, R Q. Very enigmatic indeed a work to read through. Thanks for this share.

      Votes up and shared.

      God bless you and hope you are enjoying this weekend so far.

      Thanks again Deergha for having a look-see at this one, which is a few months' old now, and glad that it appealed to your sensibilities.

      I don't know about you, but sometimes when I look back on the older writes I sometimes think ' What a load of 'ol rubbish ' ha!ha!, but I guess it should present a notable marker and hopefully, a sign of progress.

      Take Care;
