' UPON THE TILTING OF A ROSE

There be an air of sensuality, to the tilting of a Rose;
young stems curving gracefully.......as they maturate,
so they may support the blossom of their better half,
in glorious rapture by the fresh mist...of the new day

And the glow in the after.....of this eye-captive event,
be likened to a pink-warm shine, washing the faces
of lovers, as they ensconce.....in juxtaposed nirvana;
until woman wraps her curves around man's desire.

The beauty of a Rose, is fully realised through virility;
its stem, the backbone, and prowess to her majesty.
No thrust of effloresence....be so beautiful to behold,
as the amorous climax.......upon the tilting of a Rose.

    Enjoyed this very much, it shows the tender side of mother nature, and how soft and delicate a rose can age with its perfection.... Very nice picture you have painted here of a life in comparison to a woman...... Nicely done once again! !

    Your idea of comparison of the rose to a woman not only poetic but very endearing my friend.This poem as delicate as a fresh rose bud ready to bloom.A very much enjoyed piece of art.

    a rose is always a rose
    even if it tilts
    its a rose
    even if deflowered
    its a rose
    that scent of a FLOWER

    'Juxtaposed nirvana...' What a delicious phrase! I loved the comparison of this piece..the rose to the tilting woman. It is beautiful, soft, and yet sensual at the same time.

    The srength of the stem holding the delicate darling
    The color vigor and grace - all go hand in hand
    A Tilt of the Rose makes no noice
    Still the music is out in air
    String of violin at its best place.

    The melody in the poem is so great
    Read and read and read...
    It has become so dear....
    Thank you dear writer.
