Poem Commentary

One of my old ones from my vault of yesteryear, however it has taken on a new Blossom as I grow with my subtle soulmate! Thank you for sharing your time with me. . .

The Rose Eternal

The Rose Eternal

A Rose is a Rose no matter how hard the breeze blows

When the stem has ceased to grow and all the petals

have fallen

And its beauty is scattered with the wind

Then will it reform in heaven to be replaced on earth

again

 

Maybe not in the same soiled place, but always with

the exact subtle grace

Planting its gentleness in souls that will fade long

before the flower

Is it a wonder the rose is a metaphor of love in its

full array

For true love never dies, nor does a rose

They but take on a new blossom with the passing

of each ethereal day

Beautifully done, soulwriter. I love that you brought the full life cycle and new birth of the flower into the piece as part of its eternal beauty...my mother's name was Rose and she passed when I was young...this was a precious reminder that her beauty will remain forever immortalized both symbolically and in heart. :-)

Love this,,,,same idea with my Aphrodite,,,.....but it is about eternal beauty because of cycle..its always my belief...eternity is cycle...not linear...

Have you ever picked a rose for a loved one and then returned back to the same bush later only to find out that 2 roses have grown in it's place. In all that gloom and despair that surrounds us in our world today we often forget about the true beauty that is always there. That is why we have poets their passion is to ensure that the true beauty of the world never be forgotten. You my friend are just that, a poet. Thank you for sharing.

I have looked at roses bright and colorful--I've watched as they died and blew away--such as a love I had withered, but the memory will stay...

Many of us are blessed at least one time in our life to discover a beautiful rose, the test is in loving and nurturing it to keep it alive and blossoming. Thank you for your insightful comments.

This poem is absolutely beautiful. Your words are strung together so nicely, beyond anything i could probably do.

No - never beyond what you can do, for what you do you do for yourself and then it is up to others to discover your art and to be blessed by it. Thank you for your kind words bestowed upon me!

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
