Unusual Rose

Unfettered flower
spills across page,
relieving herself
of chilly raindrops,
thrusting color
at beholder, singing
song of deep purple
elegance, unleashed.

Notes: No, its not my usual, only used a few words from each list. Had spent some time with the above image, which I found on the internet. Had those images in mind, when I finally looked at the words. So, I wrote about what was already in my head. To make up for the brevity of words, I want to share some of the images that occurred when I put the image through the kaleidoscope app.




And that’s only a few of them.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

PS. Once again, I am not being allowed to leave comments. My apologies until I find a way to fix the problem. E.

    First, that rose is so elegant, I’ve never seen one so rich in color. Through a kaleidoscope it takes on a new dimension. Beautifully creative!


  5. What a spectacular color, for a rose. Love what you did with it, too.


  6. p.s. says:

    Gorgeous imagery. I especially like envisioning the rose “relieving herself.” 😛 … And then, how she thrusts her color at you, whether you want it / like it, or not. Bad girl. 🙂

    I like your briefer poem. And I think I must get myself the kaleidoscope app!

    this rose certainly absorbed you Elizabeth and no wonder with captivating ways of seeing it – I liked the unusual element in your poem –
    relieving herself
    of chilly raindrops,

    Why would you need any more than a handful of words? What you have presented us with is lovely.
