. . .One Lone Rose

Updated on May 1, 2017

Kenneth, loves satire and writings to spotlight others, but he also has an "addiction" so to speak, to dramatic and abstract/prose poetry.


I'm different. Not one the same
Neither come. Neither came.
Each petal a word
Each petal a sword.

Giving beauty and glory
But only living one story.
Giving all of my beauty quiet
Sleeping while I live by night.

I'm different. Don't need a mirror
Can't be redder or more clearer.
I'm not the loudest. Not even a sigh
But the ladies love me
Vowing my red words to never die.

      Good work on this poem about roses, Kenneth. Lovely images. Quite a coincidence that my latest hub, "Cruel Words and Rose Thorns" also comprises rose poems. Great minds think alike. You should check it out.

      A Rose is a Rose

      So beautiful we all have said

      Ladies love them so pretty and red

      Or maybe pink or yellow the color may be

      A symbol of our love with a fragrance so fair

      Boxed in a dozen or in a vase

      My love says only one will do!

      Great job Kenneth lol I am no poet as you can tell.

      This poem was aesthetically beautiful to me. ( I do love flowers) The first two verses especially spoke to me. Thank you for the pleasure Kenneth

      It touched my heart that is for sure. Like humans no two roses are the same. It is always the unique ones that catches my eye. Keep writing and I will keep reading.

      Until Later,

      I love the angle on this, the speaking rose. Great idea!

      Roses are beautiful. I have an old fashioned big pink rose in my garden - the typical English garden type that looks as great when it fades as it does when it buds!

      Roses are one of my favorite flowers and I really feel peaceful after seeing one. I just loved the images and more than that I absolutely just adored this poem. Though it's short, the imagery and words are powerful and leave a brilliant message-- no two roses are the same, everyone is unique in their own way. Love it! I'm in awe of your talent, sweet friend. Keep writing. :)
