The Rose.

I was given a prompt to write a poem about a rose, without mentioning the words rose or flower, this is how it turned out.
.

Thorned beauty
Lover’s sign
Wars were fought over you
Humans are named after you
But what do you care
You just sit there
Looking pretty.
.
Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.

  1. Good personification of the rose. I see different images playing across my mind as I read this. Great work!
