The Black Rose

Black is the color of death and farewell. A black rose, like the blue rose remains elusive. What we know as black roses are actually really dark red roses. Black roses convey the death of a feeling or idea. Sending black roses to someone indicates the death of the relationship.

The color of the crone, the wise lady of death. The promise that soon you will know something you did not know before. Some see it as a bad omen. Death of fixed thoughts or ideas. Signifies a rejuvenation on the horizon. May not be understood as a gift. Les fleurs du mal from which beauty springs. Sometimes a beautiful deep red rose will bloom from a blackened bud.

I empower you to give your story or poem life of how the rose or roses touched your life.  What gift have you received? A few pointers:

Upon submitting your story please select first by color.

  • I have provided information about the symbolic meanings, this is informational only, your story of a particular color may not be associated with any of the meanings and that’s OK! If there is a connection, hurray!
  • Your submission is not limited to a single rose, it can be inspired by garden, bouquet or trellis.

As you submit your story/poem it will not appear immediately. All post are moderated for review and then posted, this way I can eliminate the spammers. Thanks for your understanding!
