Gorgeous imagery! I definitely see the inspiration!
...real beauty still shines even in dark hours.... excellent depiction & could very well fit to my artwork: Night Roses.... smiles...
Steven, I'm glad you linked to Poets United, because I've never read your work before - at least I don't think I have. This prompt took so many in different directions, but this poem has a blissful, hopeful quality. The rose has determination, and that speaks to the human condition as well. The imagery is lovely, too.Thanks so much, Amy
Lovely. The rose abloom, as night falls.
A pall by any other name would be as blessed with this rose's bloom! Great work, Steven.
The rose came very alive for me.
