Sea Rose

Sea rose, adrift in ocean's might,
Beneath the moon, a pale light.
Waves caress its petals tight,
A dance of shadows, through the night.

Salt air, a gentle, teasing bite,
Its fragrance lost, a sailor's plight.
Yet still it blooms, a lonely sight,
Amidst the waves, in endless flight.

No soil to hold, no sun's delight,
It finds its strength in water's fight.
A beacon for the lost, in spite
Of storms that rage with all their might.

When dawn breaks soft, with morning's light,
The sea rose glows, a symbol bright.
In ocean's vast, a rare insight,
Of beauty thriving, out of sight.
The drifting beauty of rose
The drifting beauty of rose


“Sea Rose” is a metaphorical exploration of resilience and beauty in the face of adversity. The poem paints a picture of a rose, not in a garden, but floating in the vastness of the sea, braving the elements. This unlikely setting highlights the rose’s strength, its ability to bloom despite the lack of traditional nurturing elements. It stands as a beacon of hope and a reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. The sea rose’s journey through the night until the break of dawn symbolizes endurance and the constant presence of light and guidance, even in the darkest of times.

Inspiration Behind

I was captivated by the idea of a rose adrift at sea, embodying the paradox of fragility and strength. The image of this solitary bloom, navigating the infinite ocean, struck me as a powerful symbol of resilience. This poem sprung from a desire to explore themes of survival and beauty in isolation, drawing on the vast, untamed spirit of the sea as a backdrop. It’s a tribute to the unexpected forms and places in which strength and beauty can manifest, reminding us of the endless potential for life to flourish in adversity.
