Roses for Different Moods


Red roses bloom in gardens of minds

When you are in love, it’s a red rose

When you are at peace, it’s a white rose

When you are content, there’s yellow rose

When you smile, it sure is a pink rose

Blue reminds of vast sky and ocean

Choose from peach, orange, green or black rose

Each for a different mood you pose

External roses give transient joy

Pick the inner rose that never dies

    An insightful poem marked for its simplicity and directness.One is reminded of the poetry of Sarojini Naidu.

    So simple yet powerful and deep…
    Loved the ending especially… though the entire poem is beautiful…

    I had written a similar poem once called… “The Moon and Me”. Rose here was the moon there… I had uploaded it on Destiny Poets.

    i would surely want to pick the white one…where peace is a treasure that this world defies…where soulful dreams be fulfilled at all times 🙂
