Spread the love


I strive to find the words;
To bring me close towards,
To clear the misconception,
To answer without a question.
Our small but distinct flaws;
Didn’t matter just because….

I glanced in your
A rose of sheer

Ocean of colors blue;
Proved it plain and true.
For though in numbers few;
These verses were written for you.
I strive to find those words;
Which brings me close towards….

I glanced in your
A rose of sheer

Oh clear the misconceptions;
Lets answer without the questions.
Our flaws distinct and small;
Didn’t matter just because,
My rhymes and all my verbs;
As sudden as flight of birds….

I glanced in your
A rose of sheer

Your virtue can my language paint;
And leave me not to fall or faint.
I strive to find the words because;
To let the world know root of cause.
Won’t you hear? Oh read my thoughts
Just in case we come across….

I glanced in your
A rose of sheer

    What an ideal subject choice for this first prompt…..there are few things that more aptly fit the description for perfection than a rose!

  2. Mary says:

    Everyone has small flaws, but in their own way – but hopefully everyone is a ‘rose of sheer perfection’ to someone.

    “Let’s answer without the questions”

    Luv the ‘ love sync ‘ implied in that line, my favourite of the entire poem

    Thanks for dropping in at my Sunday Lime Sanaa

    Much love…

    Ahh..the intoxication of love…sometimes we can’t help but look..maybe that’s good however! Happy new year to you Sanaa – and very good to read your work again too

    Beautiful song of love, Sanaa. Perhaps it is only in the early days of love that we see perfection in each other however that soon fades to reality. I wonder about perfection and whether or not it truly exists.

    Loved this piece – so romantic with just the lightest touch of whimsy … for, of course, no one is “sheer perfection” … unless they are someone’s beloved. A wonderful write, Sanaa.

    How so trying when it comes to relationships starting out! But once clicked then there is no saying of any more of time-wasting. A genuine love of a loved one will always give rather than take!

    Lovely song! Roses are indeed the perfect flower of all flowers! Also important to find the ‘rose’ inside ourselves …from self-love the way to love other ~ Happy New Year to you, Sanaa!
