I am Beauty

I open to the Rose,
And find myself,
Deep within perfumed folds of pink,
Drunk with beauty!
I open to the song of the bird,
To hear the music of my soul,
Singing free!
I open to the sky,
And find myself floating,
Soft and loving as a cloud!
I open to beauty and I open to myself,
I embrace beauty and know it as myself,
I let it in,
And let it shine.

    1. Hi Nitin! Glad to see you back. Thank you for your appreciation of I am Beauty. I make the use of metaphors in my poetry and here when I declare to the rose ๐ŸŒน that I open to her, it may not necessarily mean that I am opening to a flower. If we stretch our imaginationโ€˜the roseโ€™ may mean a woman to a man or a man to a woman.In poetry, the writer is creative and he/she has a broad, all compassing imagination. For example, one may have eyes to contemplate a rose ๐ŸŒน but the poet sees the rose ๐ŸŒน his/her gaze penetrates deep inside the closed petals to capture the essence of beauty.
      I love all flowers,
      I love the rose too,
      They are all my favorites.
