Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Writing 201: Poetry – Sonnet – One Rose

on February 27, 2015

My life has been a rich bouquet
Composed of flowers, weeds and thorns.
I cherish,  give value to every one
For different gifts they’ve given me.

Flowers bloomed beauty in my path.
Weeds put obstacles before me.
Thorns taught grappling with problems.
All were life lessons necessary.

My life has changed, bouquet no longer
My lot is now a fallow field
Ready to grow what seeds are planted.

My life’s become simplicity.
Time to be one rose complete.
For more is less and less is more.

    I love the metaphor. Nicely rendered.

  9. Love the ending.
    A single rose
    is plenty.

  10. I like that you value the weeds as much as the pretty flowers; they each teach us different lessons 🙂 ❤

      Thanks. I think I value the weeds and thorns more than flowers because they make me grow. The flowers are always there no matter what if I look for them. I once sat beside a fallow field and learned to value it because in its being it already contained the nutrients for seeds and bulbs to grow, as long as rain and sun joined the cycle. ❤
