Day 27 of OctPoWriMo! Wow, this month is almost over. Today’s prompt is favorite scent. While the Camillia is my favorite flower and I love the scent of the flower along with jasmine, magnolia, and gardenia. I have to say that still my favorite scent is the rose. So, today I write of roses. The format is a Ghazal. Quite different and challenging. I am not sure I did the form absolutely correctly, but hey! I gave it a shot. Enjoy!
Time passes, lovers come and go, but lingering still are roses.
Given in promises, taken in acceptance, loving the roses.
Two hearts, two beings, separate somehow, united in becoming,
Small tokens that speak what words cannot, bonded in roses.
Red, yellow, white, all with hidden messages,
Only the two who share intent of it all speak with roses.
Give to her a note, a card, a jewel to fit her wrist,
She’ll smile, she’ll hug, but seal it with a kiss of roses.
Pay attention to the meaning of the Wylde missive,
As she holds on tight to the lessons of the roses.
