Rose has a right to act like a human sometime..isn't it? Your imagination and creativity is profound.. excellent..
Really beautiful words. There must be many wonders in this world that protect their beauty against intruders. I can accept that.
Deep words, and a good question.
The idea of rose thorns being masks is refreshing and creative! Lovely thoughts!
It makes you think...and do a lot of human comparisons. Thanks for the lovely poem.
You have me wondering why, too. Beautifully done.
A soft and delicate poem. The visual image and metaphor of the rose and thorns is excellent.
Very beautiful and thought provoking.
so much easier to share pleasure than pain? n'est-ce pas ma chere?
A wonderfully gentle, yet vivid, poem. The scent of roses wafted across my imagination while reading it.
is it rose season in Dehli? I like the images--the feel and smell
Now do it in reverse Quatami.I wonder whybehind the mast of thornsthe rose hides its painwe sing paeans to itfires our loveits wholenesstouches our soulthe subtle scentinto our beingtender gentlenessthe delicate petalvelvety soft.It read beautifully either way. Thank you.b
Beautiful tale of what it feels like to be wearing a mask. The mask doesn't change things but it gives us a place to hide from the rest. :)..
A lovely poem about wonder and beauty, protection and pain.
balance in everything. point and counterpoint. beautifully done.
Very nice, and I like that B pointed out it can be read in both directions. Doubly cool!
a mask....a way to protect......
hm people do that dont they, hide their pain behind thorns. love the poem
The rose is a bit of a paradox, isn't it?
beautiful words that caught me in a twist. always wondered why those thorns were there.
lovely wordsmany have wondered at the rose behind the thornsperhaps so that we approach with presence and appreciation.
This was lovely...something so beautiful and masked as well- perfet
such a sweet melody to this poem. very beautiful imagery, great use of alliteration. i like it :) also interesting to see how it reads backwards, very nice. reminds me of something silly i wrote once (a form of poetry that someone i knew made up):Baiser Immortel / Immortal KissHis rose lips wet, his heartbeat stillAbsent regret, leans in to killA suck so tame, her skin so sweetLove bite does claim, her life completeAs ivory seeks deeper lustHe hungrily devours thusAnd penetrates, down to the soulReveals the fate, by moon-light stole By moon-light stole, revealing fateDown to her soul, he penetratesDevouring, so hungrilySeeks deeper lust, with ivoryHer life complete, love bite does claimHer skin so sweet, a suck so tameLeans in to kill, absent regretHis heartbeat still, his rose lips wet
