Character Sketch

I wrote of love
โ€จAnd a first kiss
โ€จEnvisioned a life
โ€จFull of dreams and bliss

Pictured conversations
โ€จOf all that matter and donโ€™t,
โ€จOver coffee, or wine
โ€จOr with our TV on.

Promised I would solve
โ€จAll the possible fights.
โ€จIn the form of poetry
โ€จI shared my plights.

Perfectly balanced
โ€จLove and war
โ€จWaged among us
โ€จWithin, forevermore.

And some time later
โ€จYou spotted me somewhere.
โ€จHad a smirk on your face
โ€จAnd fixated stare.

Love at first sight,
โ€จOr the beginning of strife?
โ€จWhatever this may be,
โ€จI think I wrote you into life.

  1. hey beautiful poetess…i love the blue rose…the are actually cut white roses that have been placed in blue water…but they are an important archetype of what hafez calls higher love, love that is transcendental & nondual…such love whispers in this poem…please send me a link to your blue rose…! โค

    1. I’ve been told that different coloured roses have different meanings. Apparently this dyed blue rose means one in a million. I’ve had it for nearly 5 years now.

      1. yes! in holland they season the die with a preservative if is a real rose as opposed to a silk! blue is associated with krishna, tara & mary. the rose is always associated with love & the feminine. so a blue rose represents spiritually enlightened love & compassionate consciousness…

  2. …i just had an ahha! moment when you pix flashed on my screen! i an the Director of Musical Liturgy in the Catholic Church. Last Sunday we had a new family & I found the both arrestingly beautiful & but oddly familiar! Turns out she almost could be a sister or cousin of yours, similar beautiful bone structure & ivory smile! I did not have the opportunity to speak to them unfortunately, but the impression lingered until now! Also, did you notice that I once had a champion cocker spaniel whose name was Ariel (lion of god). Stay in touch my blue rose! ^^~~~~

    1. Yes Ariel means lioness of God. That’s sounds intriguing. I haven’t any cousins who look similar to me. I’m the odd one in the family, you might even assume I was adopted. It would be fun to have a doppelgรคnger. Aha!
      Will do.

    1. I don’t believe I’ve ever asked myself that. Not sure why I would. I usually write based on the current events of my life or those in my life. Thank you for taking the time to read.
