A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.
A shrivelled rose is a shrivelled rose is a shrivelled rose.
Which is sad, very sad, very very sad.
It is true, very true, so true, always true;
It is true because it is so true;
It is so true because it is so.
Repeat repeat repeat: it it it repeat!
It it it it it it it it it it it it it it it it it !
There. You see?
Yes, of course, I’m a shrivelled rose.

Ah, very cute!
Thank you, Doug. 🙂
“A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose”…
Oh the mystery of the Rose…. I can’t avoid quoting Umberto Eco’s book “The Name of The Rose”> “Stat rosa pristina nomine, nomina nuda tenemus”, which translates to english as: “The primordial rose abides only in its name; we hold names stripped”~
Big hugs and all the best to you, dear Irina, Aquileana 😀
Thanks for this thought-provoking quote by Umberto Eco. I haven’t read his book.
Thanks for commenting, dear Aquileana. Hugs 🙂 Irina
Ohhh this is a playful one, indeed!! I like it 🙂
Thanks, Christy. I had a lot of fun writing it, inspired by Gertrude Stein’s poem ‘A rose is a rose is a rose’.
Poor poor rose
Thank you for empathising, Sharon.
What a fun style! I love that it is so playful 🙂
Yes, that’s what I like, too. I giggle all the way as I compose a poem like this one.
Hello beautiful lady! How cool is that poem…great one! Stay blessed!
Thank you so much, Cheryl. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Cheers 🙂 Irina
Bravo! “A rose by any other name…..” Would it hold such depth of wonder? Thank you for sharing Irina.
I’m glad you liked it, Gerry. Thanks for your lovely comment.
