I wrote of love
And a first kiss
Envisioned a life
Full of dreams and bliss
Of all that matter and don’t,
Over coffee, or wine
Or with our TV on.
Promised I would solve
All the possible fights.
In the form of poetry
I shared my plights.
Love and war
Waged among us
And some time later
You spotted me somewhere.
Had a smirk on your face
And fixated stare.
Love at first sight,
Or the beginning of strife?
Whatever this may be,
I think I wrote you into life.

This is a nice poem
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…email@example.com! ❤
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.
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…
Whom was the subject of this and did it come to fruition?
A very inspiring and handsome young man, who found me two years ago, and yes.
Beautiful!!!With love maxima
Thank you Maxima.
…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! ^^~~~~
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 doppelgänger. Aha!
actually ariel = lion & ariele = lioness according to a jewish friend…she was close enough to your photo that it gave me a sense of deja vue!
Oh I didn’t know that. Thank you. I’ve only really seen it spelt Ariel before.
technical! you are a beautiful lioness as your poetry demonstrates! true beauty comes from within & radiates outward! ❤

This is incredible! I love it.
Thank you 🙂
This is lovely.
I loved the ending. It was perfect!
Very interesting poem. And ain’t it the writer’s question: did I create this by making it up and writing it down.
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.
