THORNY ROSE~by Bhaskar Jha


 

 

THORNY ROSE

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
A rose is beautiful
Till it is beheld
From afar;
If held closely,
It pricks the fingers
Lo! Throes ajar..!

Eyes weep not;
Yet heart does bleed,
For all its beauty
Those in love plead.

I want the rose,
All spines and thorns,
Prickles teach us
Never to lock horns.
