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.

      Hi, Robert,

      Very lovely poem, buddy.

      I did not know that you were multi-talented with playing the fiddle and now poetry?

      What other gifts are you hiding from us?

      Loved the roses poem.

      Write soon.

      Elijah,

      I share your desires to be one also.

      But someone had to be here to appreciate the roses.

      Ruby Jean Fuller,

      Yes, we are all in one way or the other, doing hubs about flowers. And why not? They are harmless and give us a lasting peace. Season after season--if nurtured.

      Life is like that, huh?

      Take care write soon.

      ThreeKeys,

      My pleasure--is your pleasure.

      Roses captivate me. They always have. I give you my word that most any day I can walk along a storefront or floral shop and if I see a rose, I have to stop and then inspect it carefully and savor each petal.

      I may be nuts, but I do not care.

      Write me soon.

      Hi, PurvisBobbie44,

      Hey, girl! Long time. No see. Are you okay? Where have you been for so long. I've been missing you.

      Roses are very unique--like raindrops and snow flakes. Even identical twins have some differences.

      It took me years to understand this one fact.

      Write me more often. Deal?

      Hey, Gypsy Rose Lee,

      I am so glad that you like this piece. Rhyming lines are work for sure, but when one is finished and I can look back on the stanza's, I let out a whewwww, (sigh of relief).

      Stay on your keyboard for you are a tremendous writer.

      Dearest Sakina :)

      Love the words of your chapters "Serpent Within" and your current book. You have such a sharp gift for words and their usage. Thanking you for your sweet comment is not enough, but sweetie, it is all that I can do.

      I too, love roses.

      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. :)

      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!

      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,

      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.

      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.
