Even though every rose was designed with timeless beauty, how much more beautiful is the woman who wears one of them in her tresses?

Her presence illuminates the heart of a stranger, for under the vigil desires of a man's passionate secrets, he envisions her pretty face in his dreams.

So potent is her sweet fragrance that under the dynamic breeze, he becomes manacled by the scent of the woman who has captivated his freedom.

In his heart, he carries a make-believe tiara to crown her as a princess among the fairytale thoughts he wants to reveal.

In fantasy, his enlivened spirit even soars with vigor and zeal to a place where she shares the secrets of her heart with him.

She sways mellifluously on his mind like a rose upon a stem after its celestial beauty has attracted the eyes of a poet seeking inspiration.

Just like a rose is well-designed under nature's beauty, so the face of this beautiful woman glows among the emotional words of a poet.

  6. Andy,
    I have made a comment at this beautiful poem before.
    However, Andy I would like to thank you for visiting my poetry blog recently and leaving some very kind comments.
    I have had computer problems, which have made it difficult to spend as much time as I would have liked, visiting other blogs to read and comment.

    With his imagination and skill, a poet can take one word and make something beautiful out of it. "Mellifluous" is one such word.
