J Ann Crowder

She is a decorative spray of dancing Persian red
 
A dulcet heart, dressed in petals of dove like silk
 
An immortal rose, suffused with wild Castilian blood
 
’Tis warm and winsome—musky with scarlet blown hues
 
She is an emblem—nature's adorning, rich flume vase
 
A quiet song of ruby slumbers—an empyrean of zoetic fulgence
 
A soft roseate, charming in her silence of melliloquent bliss
 
’Tis a rathe of spring tide blush wine, forever orchestrated by God’s colored ink
 
She lives as an imperial art within my mind’s eye

Written on January 1st, 2017. Happy New Year. Red Roses are my favorite flower.

Red roses are beautiful indeed, and a work of art all by themselves. I like the phrase forever orchestrated by Gods ink. Beautiful poem Jenifer.

Ingeborg thank you! I'v been practicing using description a lot. I want to write a novel eventually and this poetry is giving me lots of practice with my vocabulary. I'm so glad to hear from other poets too. I learn so much from all of you!
