A rose stands in the garden

Violet bluebell( used to be yellow rose)

A rose stands in the garden 

a warming fire on a refreshing blanket of tenderness 

unseen flames lovingly sitting on a talkative stem 

who rests with ease on a blanket , as if a soft chatty girl were at a picnic 

loving  the time surrounded by the grass with a tenderness within 

a red rose with petals that simply love the green grass 


a rose stands in the garden 

invisible bubbles float above her 

lightness within and lightness all around 

as if there were no worries and no burdens 

just beautiful bubbles around petals 

lightness living around a girl who’s sitting on a blanket 

with feet that are grounded to the earth , as she rests with a warming ease 


a rose stands in the garden 

sitting on a blanket without any words to read 

she may not have a book or be engaged in following words in a story 

but simply reflecting on the grass below her feet 

comfortable and at ease , feeling safe and supported with a softness within and a refreshing sound all around 


white clouds circle gladly up above 

such a difference in colour to the red petals 

but they are warming just the same with a peaceful softness speaking in the blue 

reflecting the internal peace that she feels 


a rose stands in the garden 

her petals are like that of velvet or at least they seem to be 

with a warming fire within 


soft , peaceful , grounded

    Good write Rose.

    I see you as that rose Yellowrose, and this MPS as the blanket upon which you stand, well grounded. The grass, lightness and invisible bubbles are the poets here on MPS who love your work.
    "safe and supported with a softness within and a refreshing sound all around" your words.
    I think those cotton wool clouds you write about are the beauty of word ideas floating there for you to pluck and place within your poetry too.
    Another, this time VERY, enjoyable poem from you and goes into my favourites.

      Thankyou dusk , for your kind thoughts on my poem . It is probably about me , aswell as a rose . At the time of writing this I felt quite calm and peaceful ... and comfortable . I liked writing these words .,, I think the bubbles are just my way of saying how light I sometimes feel .,, compared to that heavy feeling ... sometimes I feel energetically light and peaceful ..,

      Maybe the clouds are the word ideas ..

      Thankyou for your thoughts on my poem . Iā€™m glad you enjoyed this šŸ™‚

        I guess the bubbles could be the poets on here.., or the bubbles might be ā€œ angels ā€œ too

        I do feel safe and supported on here.

        Really appreciate your thoughts on my poem
