Blue Rose

Blue Rose

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

Worthy of a second look

As water rushes to a brook.

Always catching the eye

Among the others who seem not to rhyme.

 

Standing out in indifference,

Folded inwardly in its substance.

The wind gently blows…

I am a Blue Rose.

 

I’m unlike most others,

A somewhat rarity to wonder.

The Red Rose receives the attention,

And love oftentimes is its definition.

 

Yet, when I am seen,

It’s a surprise unique

To see me grow…

I am a Blue Rose.

 

Though at times I tire,

God reminds me that I live to inspire.

Seeking His face,

I hope I lead others to His grace.

 

For every soul is blue

Until unfolding in His truth.

Fragile are my petals… this He knows…

I am a Blue Rose.

Yes, but only Blue until you find the Lord, then you are as beautiful as any flower can be in His eyes. Nice thought provoking write. Valentine

Wow and sigh .... Beautiful and even in sadness it is spectacular. I can relate as the lonely sparrow who has been endowed with a dull and brown feathers... Yet He is close to those who are blue and lonely and lowly in heart... I like Blue Rose. If you can find me one ...I'll fly by and pick it up :)

Very well written Melinda. I just love how you write uplifting poems. I don't know what flower or color of flower I am. Maybe you can tell me from the poems I have written> wouldn't that be interesting?

Beautifully written poem about a Blue Rose, the words are captivating and the faith you bring through makes one feel stronger and better. You are the muse that enables the Blue Rose to inspire, and so it seems you are the Blue Rose itself and the Blue Rose is actually you. Love this dynamic way you have of writing. My only suggestion would be the flow of the fourth line in the 1st stanza "who seem not to rhyme", perhaps you could change this to "Among the others, why?" Would that add to the poem? Please don't change the original, just a question for thought, and I really hope you win the contest, Good Luck! Please keep writing!
