Thorned Beauty

by Gem   Sep 19, 2007

Red velvet petals, soft to the touch
Never has one rose inspired so much
A scent so calming, beautiful and true
Enriched by the sparkling diamonds of dew

Yet underneath the gentle exterior waits
A warrior protecting these heavenly gates
Sharp thorns run up this slim stem of green
Proving not everything is as it seems

This thorned beauty teaches a lesson, take heed
How something so gorgeous evolves from a seed
Standing so tall, so delicate yet strong
Standing for love, for whats right and wrong

Rich ruby reds, glistening with tears
A fragile masterpiece, matured over years
Beauty and strength come together as one
Inspiring more hearts as this life goes on

    Very lovely poem. Very few think about the dangerous part of a beautiful rose, those thorns can hurt. How something so lovely, can be so hurtful at the same time.....truly is the nature of life. I love this piece.

    Wow this is one of the best poems that I have ever read. It is truely poetic art and inspiring for all of those who want to be a true poet. The rose indeed is a flower which is different than all others because it symbolizes love. You portrayed this in a very romantic way. Your words were so smooth and beautiful that I felt at peace with everything in the moment I was reading it. And that's what I believe is truely what poetry should be about, making you forget everything around you. And through this beautiful description you did exactly that. I wish there were something higher than a 5 to give this poem .
