Dear Rose (as in Dewey Knickers)

Life Shadows

We're told
a rose by any other name
is still a rose (in so many words)

I tell
Light without shadows
would be life without light,

Possibility implies
our minds
remain entangled with our heart

to become our soul.


(Meant to be a simple comment on a poem that had a broader meaning than some may infer, but my comment began so close to a poem, I had to bring it here, as such.)

I really, really like this poem, my favorite stanza being "I tell/
Light without shadows/
would be life without light,"

wonderful piece. Rose is one lucky woman to receive such a gift!!

Thank you for stopping by my page, as well!!

L. Monique - My favorite stanza,too, it is the poem's heart, the line that came first. Thank you for commenting on it.

Thanks Marcia, this has really made her feel good about herself. She gets into funks sometimes.

Marcia said...

Brian, glad it made her feel good; we ALL get in funks, that is a reality of life. Been there, will be there again, sooner than later. Thanks for telling me, too.
