The Rose

The Rose short poem

Photo by rich_f28

A rose bloomed in my garden
a solitary, pink rose.
but for the inimical companion
the thorn.

my fingers twitched
to pluck the rose
for my only love…

my fingers stretched
to embrace the sharp thorn…
in a thorn prick of pain
I withdrew…
…. peeped into
the colorful
central core…
and there I saw
her angelic, smiling face,
rosy lips,
smooth red chins,
a pair of blue iris,
the tendril of tress
curling on her dimpled chins

….the image of
MY Love….
