|An interesting perspective, Bhuwan. One can even get a splinter from sliding down a rainbow ... we must take the good with the bad. All are lessons on this human journey to awareness.

|A thorn protects
But has no scent.
A fregrant rose
Does not protect
But gives us joy instead of pain.

|Well Bhuwan, this "Rose" most assuredly possesses some thorns both as measure of protection and strength - for not only does the thorn protect the delicate flower - it also affords the stem the strength it needs to hold the flower up. One last thought, the thorns are SO necessary because in point of fact, they draw one's attention to the flower.
Also, were a "sinner" to grip the rose, is it not possible that despite the prick, they might be transformed by the beauty of the flower? Perhaps then, the thorn then protects the "sinner" from the sin? Just a few thoughts.
|Reviewed by Alexander Shaumyan (Reader)
|I see your poem in a wider sense. Thorns are like lessons learned in life. As Socrates taught: "Life unexamined is not worth living." Loved your perspective.|
|Reviewed by Veronica Hosking
|Cute, reminds me of the episode of "Sawga the Chinese Cat" I watched yesterday with the girls. Sawga got a rose thorn stuck in her paw, after running around and not watching where she was going. And it took a wise old turtle to show her how beautiful the roses were as long as you slowed down and took the time to smell the flowers. Your poem fits well with that theme.|

|That thorn can be called "Love" which jealously guards the object of it's desire and seeks to protect her from all harm, thus allowing her beauty and radiance to shine out for all to see and enjoy with him! He is a mighty Defender and Protector indeed... A true Knight to His Lady! LOVE the beautiful Rose in the visual - stunning! Thank you, Bhuwan. Kate xx|
