The image of swimming in the petals, in a non-literal sense, is marvelous. Nice use of symbolic images here!
Well damn, Mosky, why don't ya just rock it? What a gorgeous poem, and I second those emotions.
I would love to swim in her petals, and admire her beauty.
Lovely. That perfect rose. Indeed, to swim in her petals is truly to be changed by knowing her.
Love the last line... goodness does change us when we experience it fully.
Love the last line..goodness does change us when we experience it fully!
Quite a sweet immersion in those velvety petals.
Beauty in simplicity, humility is life changing...
A perfect place to be in.. I love the nocturnal aspect of the rose.
indeed she is a beauty!
divinity,simplicity,humility.... what more to aspire to than this
lovely! The rose may only bloom for a short while, but does not worry about its end...rather blooms gloriously while it is here! We could all take a lesson by swimming in her petals!
I love the poem in its entirety, Mosk! And such expression!
oh, wow, Mosk. This is lovely.
If you cannot see her, breathe in...YES.
This is just beautiful!
We can learn much from her....and your inspiring quadrille.
Love the image that "velvet petals" bring up!
This is lovely, but I was particularly drawn to your line breaks which give this a smooth flow. Nice.
You show how those roses are such a powerful symbol--really recognized universally in many, if not all cultures.
