Some Roses

Some Roses

A Poem by MsJewel

for my lovely daughter


Some roses are so lovely

they see you smile…


petals dance

                on a lullaby

the joy of a songbird’s melody

high up in the trees


As graceful as the wind stirring your hair

weaving golden threads to catch the beauty of the day

             the light that is you


First in my love, my strength, my happiness….


In times of struggle, I look to you as I would an indigo dream

of endless skies and warm spring days

and birds that sing with lifted voice


as poetry finds my heart again


and I think

some roses are so lovely

Even before I got to the line that mentions it, I was hearing birds chirping and seeing the plants and flowers gently sway in the breeze.
This is why poetry exists, to fully convey feelings bursting from a heart.
I'm sure these words will be a future treasure to that child, all grown.
Beautifully penned.

Thank you for your lovely comment :) Julie


I like this. It conjured some very pleasant imagery for me and evoked some wonderful feelings. I especially love the term "indigo dream." Beautiful. Thank you.

An interesting subject. Not reviewed for a while and enjoyed this first read. Some lovely imagery, especially as Roses are one of my favorite flowers.

I liked the way you moulded few lines so beautifully.....there were a couple of lines where you could have simply written them but you weaved them into melody.....and lastly *as poetry finds my heart again*......hit me's the basic tie/feeling/reason which brings us here....
All the best for future

I love the way your mind entwines words to the page! It is as lovely and intricate as the art work paired with it. You have a way of painting with words that I have not read any where else. Well done my friend! You are very talented and a joy to read! “Some roses are so lovely!”

What a heart whelming write! The way you infused someone’s beauty with the beauty of nature itself is so down to earth. We are all part of nature, but some of us overpower mother nature's beauty with their own stunning existence, some complete it and some make more beautiful. Thank you for sharing this extraordinary poem.
