Love Rejuvenated

My red rose
bore the brunt
of autumn blows
and white winter frost
crossing through brown fields,
but taking a cue from daffodils
has discarded
its withered leaves and thorns,
and sipped the raindrops
for dancing with its nightingale…

I have used symbolism here. The red rose is symbolic of true love, while autumn and brown fields represent adverse situation and the efflux of time respectively. Daffodil has been shown as a symbol of youth or spring, while the raindrop as the elixir of life. And nightingale symbolises the beloved.

    1. You’re right, Joanna, symbolism plays an important role, but the meaning should be conveyed correctly. I normally use simple language to make my points clear. Thank you, Joanna, I’m delighted to know that you liked it.


  1. Tbh it took me some time to understand it but then I saw the symbolic meanings and I really liked it.
    I think it’s very different from all your other poems.
    I am learning a lot from you. I hope I also write like this one day.

    1. That’s really so sweet of you, Isha. Thank you for your generous words for me. Frankly speaking, I don’t like too much symbolism. If you don’t give meanings, it’s difficult for readers to understand in the right perspective. That’s why I like to state plain facts in simple language. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’
