Where Are Your Roses - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair

Tell me friends, where are your roses?

A blooming rose pricks me with its horn andI let a cry sweet,
”Oh rose I love you”.
In this garden of pests and reptiles
Who grows this rose of just one thorn?
That is born to prick me alone?

Never do I get an answer
But the gardener throws a smile at me.
He thinks that I love this rose.
An idea springs off at last and
An answer redeems me at times.
There is no rose without a thorn.

Tell me friends, where are your roses?

    Didn't you read in the papers recently that the horticultural dept. somewhere in India has developed a new variety of rose with no thorns? A rose with just one thorn also must be a new species! ! (Just joking!) (Report) Reply
