No Comparison #art #nature #poetry


I tried to draw a rose today

but noise and life got in the way

my pencil finally took control

what it drew I hardly know

“it’s good I guess” I tell the pad

 I sniff the scent of rubber band

I tried to draw a rose today

crumpled paper, thrown away

*

rare beauty

inhale, no bottle can hold

rose succulence

Flowers can cheer a frown into a smile. Poets United knows this well and so the prompt this week is Flowers!!!

  2. I like your drawing. Appreciate your poem more because I’ve been learning how to draw and paint and realize how hard it is to capture beauty on paper.
