A Frosty Rose

by philipdodd

A frosty rose, fallen on frosted grass, felt stiff but brittle when I nudged it with my foot,

will melt, wither to white dust. The sun, blaringly bright, low in the sky, near noon, did not deceive me,

gave no heat, no, not in November. Remembered last night, tried to write, but my inspiration froze.

Lone star, hid by a cloud, no eye can see it shine, yet somehow it is sensed, could not find a further line.

@bernardtwindwil Thank you for your interesting comment on my poem. It is a record of what happened yesterday. I found a frosty rose on my back garden lawn and I could not complete a poem I started the night before about a lone star. I decided to leave the frosty rose and the lone star as they are, without trying to impose a deeper meaning on them, as if they were symbols of something.

This was mystical in character. I loved the metaphor of the frosted rose. This was well written and your message whil cryptic was easily understandable for those who would look beyond mere words. Great job!!!!!!!!!
