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!
