The Magic of a Rose—Rose Prompt—Poetry Scavenger Hunt

A rose as a thing

Is already interesting

Without imbuing

It with magical power.

.

Papery petals

As soft as a Turkish silk

Lite, creamy, and smooth

Delicate as sweet raw milk.

.

The smell, as it goes,

Is pleasant. It’s a flower!

Like perfume and toes

Mostly clean from the shower.

.

But magic it’s got,

And when you’re on the spot,

And her day is shot,

She’ll forget you forgot.

.

And, yeah, that’s one hell

Of a magical power!

.

I wrote this poem following the prompt ‘rose’ as part of Muris’ poetry scavenger hunt on the A Different Perspective page. If you want to participate, check out her page here: https://murisopsis.wordpress.com/2022/03/30/looking-forward-to-poetry-month/

  1. Hehe! A clever little poem! I’ve heard that flowers can lift spirits and smooth over rough spots. I’ve never been a flower kind of girl. If Sparky brought me flowers I’d want to know what he’d done that guilt would persuade him to spend money on dead flowers!!

    1. It is a problem. I am having trouble keeping up with all the television I am supposed to be watching. lol 😀

      But really, I am having fun with it. And I am improving. Writing poetry used to be very difficult and my poems would be poor to mediocre.

      Now, I am finding that I can focus on the things that I used to ignore like rhythm and rhyme. And I think many of my poems lately have been really good.
